Default Headache rack

Well I'm kinda new to this forum but I am having the most trouble finding a good looking headache rack to fit my 2003 ford ranger edge stepside bed and that's why I'm having so much trouble is because it's a stepside so can anyone give me some directions for what I need to do to find one?

Default Re: Headache rack

Me and my buddy built one for my truck! definitely sets mine from the rest for sure



after paint...kinda needs repainted


here is a picture after it was done, still like to add some support to it still but its good for now


ik its not a stepside but its what i did, i didnt need a full tool box but need some sort of storage for straps and it does the job just wish i made it deeper to put antifreeze and washer fluid bottles in it

Like yourself, I looked and looked, and never found any manufactured ones. Just as well, I guess. I'd windup adding lights, and who knows what else. Actually saved me some time and $$$ not finding one!
