How long will it take to get my headache rack(s) after I order?
Due to a number of factors both in and out of our control, we are currently producing flat headache racks and headache rack/hydraulic tank combos in a timeframe of between 1 and 16 weeks, depending on the set-up and current stock levels. Current lead times can be discussed with your sales representative before ordering.

How do I build a rack, and how does this builder work?
Building Your Rack:
Simply follow the instructions in the builder above to build your headache rack. For each selection you make, the accessory that you select will appear on the rack on the left side of your screen (or above on most mobile devices). When you are done each step, you can navigate to the next step by selecting the orange “NEXT” button.
You can navigate and make changes to your rack at any time prior to submitting by selecting the “Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 and/or Step 4” tabs at the top of the builder.
When you’re happy with the rack you’ve built, just submit the form after completing all of the steps.
Once your ad has been submitted, our sales team will review and will contact you with a price based on your selections.
Errors, Interferences and Incompatible Products
Not all accessories are compatible with other accessories. If you have selected any accessories that interfere with one another or are incompatible with one another, you will see an error noted in red. Once you have revised your selection appropriately, the error message will disappear. Each error message will make clear what each issue is and recommend how to fix it.
Your rack must be free from any errors before we can quote you a price.
Where do you guys ship your products to?
We ship our products across North America, including Canada, Mexico, and the Continental United States (including Alaska).
If you live outside of that area and want to get a hold of our products, please contact us.
How much does it cost to ship to _______________?
We’ll quote you a shipping price when we get in touch with you, before your order is finalized.
Is there any obligation to order after I submit my rack?
Not at all! We encourage you to make and submit as many racks as you want with no obligation to order.
Do you guys do installations?
We do not do installations. However, depending on your location, we may be able to recommend a dealer or installer that can help you out with installation, and even purchasing and ordering. Feel free to ask your sales representative when they contact you.
