From the patented Pick-up Trak™ and Pick-up Truss™ to the fully outfitted extension side beams, you can't buy a better rack for your truck. Components are sold individually or as a total system. You can start with Pick-up Trak and add the Pick-up Truss later. A Pick-up Truss set combined with Pick-up Trak handles an evenly distributed 800 lb. load. Adding the extension side beams increases capacity to 1200 lbs. Numerous accessories can be added and positioned anywhere on recessed "T" slots
We understand that your truck is a tool for your business as well as a representation of your business. Even though you use your truck for work you don't always want it to look like a work truck. BACKRACK™ maintains your trucks stylish good looks while providing you with a practical tool to carry ladders and long loads, secure shifting cargo, or mount most any type of light or accessory.
BACKRACK™'s low profile design allows you to park your truck in places you couldn't with a full size ladder rack. In northern climates it allows you to park in your garage to keep the snow off your truck in the winter. Park downtown or at the airport in multi-level parking. We even offer folding light brackets that hinge down to allow clearance when required.
If cab protection and employee safety are your primary concern then Safety Rack from BACKRACK™ is the solution you need. The Safety Rack provides complete coverage of the rear window while offering clear visibility through the two inch fully welded wire screen.
The two inch wire screen is manufactured using 3/16" cold rolled wire that is welded at each and every intersection. Strong and rigid enough to tie to, yet easy to see through. The screen is robotically welded into a heavy guage two inch square steel frame. The generous width allows for increased ladder and cargo carrying capacity versus the Backrack™ Cab Guard. Add Light Brackets to mount lights and accessories.
You need your trucks on the job site, not at the dealer waiting for accessories. BACKRACK™ products are available wherever truck accessories are sold. With our extensive Distributor network you can be sure that BACKRACK™ products are ready when your trucks are. Safety Rack Cab Guards bolt on in minutes and make the installation of lights and accessories both hassle free and damage free. No
One of the reasons people like BACKRACKs & SAFETY RACKS so much is because they are made "accessory friendly". Whether you want to mount toolboxes, cargo, ladders, signal lights or antennas, BACKRACK & SAFETY RACK has the accessory to get the job done. All brackets are coated with BACKRACK & SAFETY RACK's durable powder-coat finish and all hardware is yellow zinc coated for superior corrosion resistance.

Weatherguard 1425 Aluminum Utility Body Rack
System One® makes racks in various lengths and heights for service/utility body trucks and they are offered in both standard and I.T.S.® series. These racks are usually mounted to our Utility Traks for increased rigidity and tie-down capability. In bodies with top-opening compartments where the stationary ledge near the hinge is often too narrow to mount the Utility Traks, our "B Trak" is usually the solution. Body to roof height varies among these trucks so we stock legs of varying lengths from 12" up in 2" increments. Utility Traks are available in lengths of 8', 9' and 11' to accommodate various body lengths. Our Extension Beams (for Contractor Rigs™) are available in lengths of 102", 120", 138", 147", 156" and 174" for various cab/body combinations. System One’s® Contractor Rig® and Utility Rig™ can be mounted to utility bodies. Our Utility Trak provides a rigid mounting surface for either style rack. One, two or three trusses can be mounted and dismounted with ease anywhere along the length of the Trak. The Utility Trak attaches to the top surface of the utility body using concealed bolts and also serves as a structural anchor rail for tie-downs. Racks are available for 8 , 9 and 11 ft. bodies. The Extension Beams for Contractor Rigs are supplied in lengths of 102”, 120”, 138”, 147”, 156” and 174” depending on the body and cab length. The difference in height between the body and cab roof must be provided as racks are available in different heights.
