Safety

First and foremost, our racks provide additional safety for a driver. The rack is an added layer of protection between cargo in the truck bed and the driver in the cab. Magnum racks also provide protection for the cab window by preventing sharp items from directly scratching the cab window.

A truck rack also allows drivers to secure items to the rack itself. Most truck racks are compatible with toolboxes and tonneau covers so you aren’t forced to choose between the rack and other accessories.

Style

Whether opting for a Low or High Pro, Sport, or Standard rack, each Magnum rack makes a statement. Here is a quick rundown of the differences in racks:

  • Low Pro – Sits approximately cab height. This model comes equipped with brake, signal, and reverse lights. The Low Pro is Magnum’s #1 selling rack. While dark, the 4 LED lights create an impressive look for those following behind
  • High Pro – Sits slightly above cab height. The High Pro shares the height of the Standard model and the lights from the Low Pro to create a functional rack with the Magnum style.
  • Sport – Sits approximately cab height – The Sport Rack is the same height as the Low Pro but incorporates all-in-one stop, tail, turn and backup lights
  • Standard – Sits slightly above cab height. The Standard headache rack finds the balance between appearance and functionality. A great fit for professional contractors who need a rack with a rugged, modern design.

These days, headache racks have evolved to serve a variety of different functions. Truck racks not only allow drivers to be safe while hauling equipment, machinery and materials but they also give a vehicle an eye-catching appearance.
