Magnum builds some of the best truck racks on the road. We proudly design and build our headache racks in the USA – in Maine. With Magnum’s extensive options, you can get the exact look and fit you want for your pickup truck.

Magnum products are designed to look great and level up your truck’s style. Most important, they help you get more done with your truck, while protecting your windows, cargo, and passengers. All welded aluminum construction with powder coated finish provides exceptional durability and lightweight performance.

Whether you’re a weekend warrior configuring a plow truck with light bars and strobes, a carpenter hauling lumber to the jobsite, or an angler hauling the canoe to the next pond, a Magnum truck rack is a must-have part of your setup. Secured to the stake pockets built into your truck bed, Magnum headache racks are easy to install. With Magnum accessories like truck bed rails and rear cargo racks, turn up your truck’s hauling game and add custom light and tie-down options.

Need a headache rack? Looking to get more use from one you already have? Magnum is here to help with racks, accessories, and lighting packages to upgrade your truck.

Headache Racks

Magnum builds headache racks in Low Pro, Standard, High Pro, and Service Body designs. Each rack is specifically crafted to fit your vehicle; when ordering, select your truck’s make/model and year so Magnum can build your perfect headache rack.

The lighted Low Pro is Magnum’s most popular headache rack. Level with the height of the truck’s cab and compatible with a tonneau cover, the Low Pro lighted rack has reverse, brake, and signal lights built in.

Need a little extra height with your rack? A High Pro truck rack with lights clears the top of your truck’s cab by approximately three inches. It can also be used with a tonneau cover, and includes brake, reverse, and signal lights.

A Standard headache rack comes in High Pro dimensions for those who want to keep it simple. Get just the rack – no extra features or lights. Get Low Pro, Standard, or High Pro racks with full-width slats, with a window cutout in the middle, or in a high visibility configuration with no middle slats.

Magnum Sport headache racks combine the Low Pro’s best features with updated lighting technology. With integrated LED stop/turn/tail and backup lights, your truck rack looks sleeker than ever.

The EC truck rack series is an affordable solution with fully welded, rust resistant construction. EC headache racks ship fully assembled. Mount accessories to the side and top bars. Designed to work with a tonneau cover.

Finding a truck rack that actually fits a service body truck is tough. Magnum designed Service Body racks to fill this gap in the market, creating a custom fit with light, rugged aluminum construction. Choose rack height from 16” to 24” to ensure your third brake light is not obstructed. Service Body racks are available with slats, with a window cutout, or high visibility design.
