i think it would get in the way of my sides i put on for mulch. the sides cover the back so nothing can scratch the cab

mine has saved my glass many times, and can load wood super fast without worrying about breaking anything, can haul a long ladder too.

Same boat but was with landscape timbers. Broke the first window, had one ever since.

You want a full headache rack not one of those backrack POS.

I wouldn't own a pickup without a headache rack any pickups I had there was a headache rack on it.

Backrack makes what they call a safety rack. It fully protects the window with heavy duty mesh. I had it on my last truck and now on the new one. Very high quality. I broke a back window many years ago because it was unprotected. Never again.

Never needed one, so I don't have one.

True, I try to be carful, something will happen some day, but I prefer not to have one. I like custom made ones with lights and such, but I don't care for the back rack style.

That puny little piece of mangled steel hardly covering the back window ain't no real headache rack,
when I'm reading the title I thought you guys meant a RACK!

They usually run $75-80-100-200 for a used one, they start at 150-200 for new and go to 300 and up...
Takes two guys to put one on, they fit inside those holes in the sides of the bed
and a true (full) rack eventually covers the WHOLE top of the truck from front bumper to rear,
it's usually used to store ladders and what have you.

And if you've ever had one of those you will know why it's called a headache rack,
that little puny piece of steel in the pic there I can't even bang my head on proper,
what's the function of that POS, do the off-road lights give it character?

Here's a small $268 one (and the reason it's called a headache rack is because when you reach in the bed to grab something...):
