5 of our Favourite Racks Built with our Headache Rack Builder

Jun 5, 2020Announcements

Our headache rack builder turned 1 year old last week!

To celebrate, we’ve gone through our archives and pulled photos of some of our favourite racks that were built on the builder that became a reality.

Since we launched our headache rack builder a year ago, we’ve received submissions of every kind imaginable. From basic racks with chain racks and a window, to fully decked out racks with custom text light bars and 70 gallon hydraulic tanks. You guys have impressed us with your creativity, and we’ve learned a lot from it, too.

Below we’ve put together five of our favourite racks that were made in the builder that became a reality. These truckers were not only nice enough to purchase our products, but were also cool enough to send us a prideful photo of their new, custom headache racks installed on their truck.

So thanks to all of you, truckers, we couldn’t do this without you!

1. The Celtic S.M Rack

Headache Rack with Custom Text Light Bar

Build your rack with the builder >>

This rack uses most of the bells and whistels offered by our builder, combining to create a clean, personalized rack that allows for a ton of storage options.

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch smooth aluminum construction.
  • Strobe light bar.
  • “CELTIC S.M.” Custom textlight bar, with shamrocks.
  • Load light tabs
  • Left and right main storage cabinets.
  • Centre jail bar window with cabinet underneath.
  • Lower side boxes for access from the ground.
  • 30 Gallon hydraulic tank

2. This Enclosed Flat Rack

Headache Rack with Cabinets and 70 GAL Hydraulic Tank

Build your rack with the builder >>

This rack is a great example of how you can get enclosed headache rack functionality with a flat rack base. This trucker also did a great job of using the builder’s many options to get the size of hydraulic tank he needed.

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch checkerplate aluminum construction.
  • Left and right main cabinets.
  • High centre cabinet.
  • 70 Gallon hydraulic tank

3. The Empire Fleet Racks

Flat Headache Racks on Fleet of Trucks

Build your rack with the builder >>

This was one rack design that was created for nearly the entire fleet of trucks at Empire Transportation. It’s not only a great example of a slightly more “standard” rack that you can make with our builder, but also demonstrates the scale of work that we can do. Our builder isn’t just for one-off racks, fleets use it, too!

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch checkerplate aluminum construction.
  • Load lights up top.
  • Left and right chain racks.
  • Jail bar window for rear-view vision.
  • Full-width chain trays.
  • Lower left/right storage boxes for easy access from the ground.
  • Boot box between the headache rack legs for extra storage.

4. The Popular Flat Rack with Centre Cabinets

Headache Rack Centre Cabinet and Chain Racks

Build your rack with the builder >>

This was one that kept surprising us – this design landed in our inboxes quite often. If you think about it, you can understand why. This rack design kind of gives you the best of both worlds for excellent bang for your buck: the easy access of chain racks, and the security of an enclosure. It’s a great design, for sure, and we love seeing how many of these designs leave our shop!

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch checkerplate aluminum construction.
  • Left and right side chain racks.
  • Full-height centre cabinet.
  • Left and right split chain trays

5. The Polished Smooth Rack

We should preface this part of the post by saying that we don’t polish aluminum in-house. This rack was polished by the customer, but we were so pumped about how it turned out that we had to share it here. The rack itself is a great example of getting a basic enclosed rack while allowing for vision out the rear window. Since this rack was made, we’ve seen more and more guys polishing their racks for this effect, and we love it! Keep it coming!

This rack features:

  • Our standard 1/8-inch smooth aluminum construction (polished by the customer).
  • Left and right side main cabinets.
  • Jail bar window with lower cabinet beneath.
  • 30 Gallon hydraulic tank
