While a headache rack can enhance the rugged good looks of any pickup truck, their most important purpose is to protect the cab and rear window from damage. Without one, all it takes is one accidental load shift and your day is ruined. You’re left with expensive down time while the truck is repaired or, if left alone, the value of the vehicle takes a hit. More importantly, it’s a safety risk. Without a headache rack there's little to prevent some part of that load from crashing through and seriously injuring you or a passenger. A headache rack by Spyder Industries is a good line of defense on either front.
We launched back in 2009 with our signature series of headache racks. The flagship design was the iconic spider web pattern. We quickly expanded to include other insert styles such as louvers, grates, and even wildlife art – all within our unique inner/outer frame construction. Since all of our racks are hand-built and made to order, optional add-ons like angle horns/lumber stops, tie-downs, and special lighting are fully integrated into the rack when it’s fabricated.
But what about the customer who needs to be able to change the functionality of the rack after purchase? That’s where the WerX series headache rack was born - a rugged headache rack ideally suited for commercial, fire, emergency, and municipal customers that could be adapted and modified at any time.
We started with a simpler base rack design with special bracketry and ties-downs built right in – all at a price point below any of our other headache racks. Then we created optional add-ons like strobe light mounts, LED lighting, antenna/PA speaker mounts, and lumber stops that can be bolted-on allowing the customer to easily reconfigure the rack on any given vehicle. The WerX Rack is one of the most versatile headache racks available on the market. It’s the ‘Transformer’ of headache racks.
