Default Headache Rack,

Hey guys

I'm looking into putting a headache rack on my new truck (08 Chevy crew cab stupid short box (5'8")) and was woundering what your guys had on your trucks, how they looked/performed, I haul lots of firewood, and also run as a pilot truck

-Extra tail lights
-room to mount a beacon
-Some way to mount wide load banners
-rear window pertection

I use a back rack, looks good works good. It came with a bracket with a plate and a beacon light that extended off the drivers side. I took the beacon light and bracket off and used the wires for offroad light that I mounted on the top. Works great for tying taller stuff to. One thing you'll want to consider is if u plan on putting a tool box in or if u already have one. Because there are a couple different brackets for the side of the bed rail depending on if u put a tool box in or not.
If your Looking more for rear window protection I would recommend a Safety rack by back rack. They also have a bunch of accessories

Check out Frontier Gear and Ranch Hand... They have some good options with lighting capabilities... Also, Spyder Industries makes some customizable headache racks.
