Ladders, lumber, pipe, kayaks - any long cargo - is much easier to load ...
WHY A 1/2 OR 3/4 HEIGHT REAR HOOP?
While our headache racks are an outstanding tool to help protect your truck cab you can boost their functionality with the addition of our half or three-quarter height rear hoops. Rear hoops for trucks allow you to easily haul long loads without the bulk of a full size equipment or pipe rack.
Contractors love the lower height because it's easier to load. The angle also creates more clearance over the cab which is critical if you're hauling a long, flexible load. And, of course, the smaller size of the rear hoop makes popping it in and out of your stake pockets a breeze when you don't need it.
Just like our headache racks, rear hoops are designed to fit your specific truck bed. They include a pair of angle horns (lumber stops) for load control and mounting hardware and features all steel construction with matching black powder coat finish. Rear hoops for trucks are available in half-height and three-quarter height. Bar height varies slightly between truck models (relative to headache rack) - half-height: approx. 11-12". Three-quarter: approx. 17-18".
NOTE: Older Ford F150's and the newer aluminum body F150/250/350's require drilling a 5/16" hole through the top of your bed cap and the use of supplied nuts/bolts to secure the rear hoop. In this application, the base plate of the rear hoop has a pilot hole to use as a drill template. Ford does not provide a hole through the side of the stake pocket to use a wing bolt as described in this video. Please call us if you have questions.
