The Father of all Headache Racks

The Vader Rack is a formidable new headache rack from Iconic MetalGear. 

Built from the strong yet lightweight aluminum, this rack embodies the strength of the Dark Side without compromise. Chain racks on each side and two adjustable shelves in the center ensure the secure containment of your cargo.

The Vader Rack commands attention with its sleek, imposing angled face design. Its hexagonal “armor” door pattern adds a touch of ominous elegance while fortifying its resilience against the trials of the road.

Security is paramount. The Vader Rack is equipped with lockable black whale tail handles, ensuring that your cargo is secure on the road or at the truck stop. Quarter-inch pin stainless steel hinges ensure smooth operation.

Designed to withstand the harshest conditions, the Vader Rack features a weather-resistant rain gutter design, complemented by an automotive bulb seal.

The VADER rack is installed using our flush-mount, 3-point, u-bolt lag mounting system. For optimal installation, we recommend employing our suggested mounting kit: U-Bolt Mounting Kits, available in 17″ or 21″ options.

The Vader Rack is not merely an accessory – it is a symbol of dominance, embodying the indomitable spirit of the Dark Lord himself.
