    So I'm in the market for some rear window protection for my pickup as I have already had a log go through the back. I'm still debating it though because I'm worried it will make backing the truck and visibility issues for me and my guys. Does it cut visibility to the point where it will be a pain? I dont wanna sink a few hundred and not be happy. I'm looking at the rki brand, i know backrack makes 2 models but they are junk IMO, had issues with that brand before.

    I have the safety rack style and it doesn't cut down on visibility at all really provides maximum protection and to me seems very strong never had a problem with it. I love it

    Thanks for the post. What we are trying to do is a bit different from a utility rack. We started out thinking we would do something along the lines of what is already out there, but as we got into it we decided to go for the high end (It is more fun to work in this area) Our rack is machined and tig welded, with custom options and a screen made from 1/4 inch 6061 machined plate, rather than expanded metal or wire.
    Nobody does this that I know of except us. So if you want something cool for your rig, check us out.
