Designed and developed from the ground up to not only keep your cab cooler (and eliminate all of those hot headaches you’ve been getting) but also to protect your rear windshield from damage at the same time, headache racks are very often custom pieces of fabricated metal that completely change the way you use your truck forever. That being said, there are a couple of very specific things you should be looking for in quality headache racks before you make your investment.
