Open Post headache racks are the perfect solution for people who want to access their rear window. These back racks are fully adjustable as the post insert moves up and down and the side rails can be tapered to match the same angle as your truck cab. This patented designs gives you that custom one-of-a-kind look. The open post headache rack protects the cab and the rear window from potential damage.

Open post headache racks (cab guards) are available in sizes that fit all pickup trucks and come with our Lifetime Warranty.
1. 1/8" Rust Free Aluminum
Aluminum's strength-to-weight ratio is far more superior than steel. Steel is twice the weight of aluminum and no matter what you do, steel will rust. All Highway Products, Inc. headache racks are made from 1/8" rust-free T6 6061 aluminum; the same material used by the military, aircraft manufactures and boat builders. This thick, lightweight material is the perfect solution for reducing the weight of your work truck.
2. Custom Fit
Fully welded headache racks do not allow you to customize them to your truck. Our effortless custom-fit design allows you to adjust the uprights and mesh insert to the height of your cab. This customization gives your headache rack that low profile design so you can drive your truck in places you couldn't with a full size lumber rack.
3. Tapered Design
The tapered design matches the uprights to the contour of your cab; a key feature that gives your truck that stylish look. Aside from the good looks, these racks perform like an extra tool for your truck. They can be used to carry ladders, lumber or anything that is longer than the cab of your truck.
4. LED Lights
Headache racks with lights add extra protection when breaking and decreases the chances that you will be rear-ended. We can embed LED strips directly into the uprights or cross section, giving it flush look. Adding lights to your cab guard gives it that custom look that will separate you from the crowd.
5. Mounts, Brackets & Trays
Mounts can be welded to the top or side of headache racks so you can add utility lights or emergency rotating lights. Brackets can be purchased so you can display "Over-sized Load" signs, beacons, flags and lights. Adding trays between the uprights is a perfect storage solution for storing items like jacks, chains or rope.
All of our standard products come with a Lifetime Warranty against defects in workmanship. Your warranty includes locking mechanisms, hinges, gas props, weather stripping, and any other materials we use.
Our Aluminum finish features a smooth texture so gear easily slides in and debris is easily swept out and/or hosed off. Aluminum never rusts and just needs a little polishing now and then to keep its brand new sharp appearance.
Black & Silver
The new Black and Silver edition is beautifully crafted and matches perfectly with today's popular black and silver truck wheels. This finish is something to consider as it will add an luxurious touch to your vehicle.
Diamond plate, also known as checker plate or tread plate, is a regular pattern of raised diamonds on one side which combines the looks of toughness and durability. Sharp and Clean!
