What’s The Best Headache Rack for Plow Trucks

Got a Plow Truck? Change the Game with a Headache Rack and Plowing Accessories

If you’ve explored headache racks before, then you probably know that they can change your life – especially when it comes to plowing snow in the winter.

Personally speaking, we tend to prefer a more High-Pro Style Headache Rack (like the ones below). Headache racks are meant to increase vehicle and plowing safety, as well as looking extremely cool. While low-pro and high-pro offer the same visibility, high-profile racks offer unique advantages for plow trucks.

High-profile racks don’t just boost visibility, they also come with a large selection of aftermarket accessories. We’ve rounded up just a few of our favorites that can make the plowing experience safer and easier.

Tune in with an Antenna Bracket

If you do a lot of plowing, then you know that the days can be lonely. With a high-profile headache rack, you can quickly attach this antenna bracket in a matter of minutes. For less than 30 bucks, this antenna bracket can be positioned anywhere along the top of your headache rack.

Tuning into your favorite early-morning radio show? This antenna will do just the trick.

Looking out for severe weather? This bracket can keep an eye out for you

Keeping in touch with the rest of your plowing team? This bracket will be the glue that holds it all together.

But this antenna bracket isn’t just for antennas. You can also use it to mount lights (like fog or reverse lights) with the threaded stud. Betcha didn’t see that coming!

Stay Safe with an LED Warning Light Bar for your Plow Truck

If you’re a nighttime plower, you know that lighting is everything. Even in the darkest of nights (or during the thickest blizzards), you won’t need to worry about not being seen with an LED warning lightbar, complete with 21 pre-programmed flashing patterns.

This LED Warning Light Bar installs so easily, you could do it with your eyes closed (although, we wouldn’t recommend that). It mounts with the help of four, heavy-duty, 35-pound magnets. You can position it anywhere along your headache rack, and it comes with a 12’ power supply cord that plugs into any 12V cigar plug. 

If you opt for a low-profile headache rack, the lights will sit a bit lower after installation. However, mounting this warning light bar to your high-profile headache rack will give you much-improved visibility, as the bright lights shine well above the top of your cab.

Light Up the Night with a 52” Double Row Light Bar

Your high-profile headache rack wouldn’t be complete without this 52” Double Row Light Bar.

This light bar will be the brightest star in the dark night. Literally. 

Equipped with 100, 3W, high-performance LED lights, this light bar produces over 13000 lumens. That’s enough light to turn even the darkest nights into day. Can you imagine how much easier plowing will be with this handy helper?

It also comes with mounting hardware, so you don’t need to worry about purchasing yet another hardware kit. Not only that, but it can also be easily installed in less than an hour, even for DIY novices.
