    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.

    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.
