5 Custom Enclosed Iconic MetalGear Semi Truck Headache Racks That You’ve Got to See!

One of our most popular products in the last couple of years has been our enclosed headache racks.

More than just extra pockets for your truck, we build our enclosed racks out of strong, military/marine grade lightweight aluminum to help ensure they last a long time without adding a substantial amount of weight to your truck. Couple this with our meticulous attention to, and obsession with, build quality to our nearly infinite customizability options for these enclosed headache racks, and you end up with some pretty badass headache racks that are largely, in part, designed by MetalGear customers.

Below are 5 of our favourite enclosed racks from the last couple of years, in no particular order.

1. The Custom Enclosed Headache Rack / Hydraulic Tank Combo

The first version of this custom enclosed headache rack was actually built from checkerplate aluminum instead of the smooth aluminum pictured above. However, the checkerplate version went viral in the trucking community and requests for smooth (and even mirror stainless) versions started to pile in. Since then, we’ve continued to make a bunch of these; even giving them dedicated part numbers now to make them easier to identify in-house.

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch smooth aluminum construction.
  • LED lights with chrome bezels.
  • Left and right side storage compartments.
  • Centre storage box.
  • Lower side boxes on the left and right sides for accessibility from the ground.
  • Clever storage box behind the lights for smart additional storage.
  • Jail Bar Window.
  • 50 Gallon Hydraulic Tank

2. This Red & Mirror Stainless Steel Enclosed Headache Rack

This headache rack started turning heads the second it hit the road. It’s bright red colour was specially selected to match the driver’s truck. The colour commands your attention, and when it’s coupled with those beautiful mirror finish stainless steel doors with subtle x-pattern design, this custom enclosed headache rack really pops.

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch smooth aluminum construction.
  • Mirror finish stainless steel doors.
  • Red powder coating to match the driver’s truck.
  • Left, right and centre storage boxes.
  • Custom mirror finish stainless steel mounting plate.
  • Strobe Light Bar

3. “The Empire” Checkerplate Enclosed Headache Rack

Big, tall, and decked out are three phrases you could used to describe this beast. Named “The Empire” after the customer that ordered it (Empire Transportation), this rack was designed to fulfill the unique needs to this particular driver. It’s fully decked out in 1/8″ checkerplate, and, if checkerplate is your thing, you’ll probably love this rack as much as we do.

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch smooth aluminum construction.
  • Checkerplate exterior throughout
  • Three giant storage compartments on the left, right and centre of the rack.
  • Two lower side boxes for access from the ground.
  • Boot box that fits between the legs of the rack.
  • Tarp tray fitted up top

4. The Black & Mirror Stainless Beauty of a Headache Rack

If you follow our Facebook or Instagram pages, you’ve seen this one for sure. We made this one for some of our Facebook fans who saw some our previous work and had to get some of it for themselves. Working with our in-house design team, they came up with this beauty of a headache rack. The contrast of the black powder coated finish and the reflection off of the mirror finish stainless steel doors might just be second to none.

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch smooth aluminum construction.
  • Black powdercoated body (inside and out).
  • Mirror-finish stainless steel doors.
  • 9 LED lights with chrome bezels.
  • Strobe light bar.
  • Top “flip up” storage compartment
  • Left, right and centre storage compartments
  • Left and right side lower storage compartments for access from the ground.

5. The “Monster Rack”

Desired by many, owned by a few. This monster of a headache rack (hence its name) was so awesome, it caught the attention of Lifted Life TV who installed it on their project truck that you might have seen on TV lately. An explanation doesn’t really do this rack justice, so we’ll just let you look at it!

This rack features:

  • Just look at it!
