Form, function, or price. Pick any two. While this play on an old axiom might be true, we aim to blur the lines with three different lines of headache racks - each with their own unique strengths, but quality at their core. All feature steel construction for strength and durability, a two-coat (epoxy primer plus top) powder finish for better corrosion resistance, and fine texture, satin black color that looks great on any truck.
Here’s a rundown on what makes each one a little different to help you decide which might be best for you and your truck.
The Spyder Series is our signature line of headache racks for trucks. It started with our iconic spider web pattern and has grown to include other insert styles such as louvers, grates, and even wildlife art – all within our unique inner/outer frame construction (a design feature that other manufacturers have started to mimic). Since all our racks are hand-built and made to order, optional add-ons like angle horns/lumber stops, grab handles, and LED lighting are fully integrated into the rack while it’s being fabricated. Our racks are tailored to fit each truck model to look their best and perform as they should. The Spyder Series headache rack frame also serves as the foundation for our ever-popular custom logo racks for businesses.
If you want a premium, top-of-the-line headache rack that won’t disappoint, this is the one. They’re priced at or below others in their class.
For the customer who needs to be able to change the functionality of the rack before and after purchase, then the WerX series might be for you. The WerX Rack is a rugged headache rack ideally suited for commercial, fire, emergency, and municipal customers that can be adapted and modified at any time.
It features a simpler frame design with special bracketry and ties-downs built right in – all at a price point below any of our other headache racks. 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.
For the budget conscious enthusiast, Spyder Industries offers the Econo-Rack – a bit of a cross between the Spyder Series and WerX with a simple frame design and the popular spider web pattern. It features the same heavy duty, high-quality construction, same tough powder coat finish, and same warranty as our other headache racks. Lumber stops and eye hooks for load control are also standard.
These are intended for full-size pickups only and are made in three basic sizes, so they are a little more universal in nature. Customers receive one that will best fit their particular truck. No other options are available.
