Video Transcript for Aries AdvantEdge Headache Rack Review

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer, and today we'll be taking a look at our Aries AdvantEDGE Headache Rack right here at etrailer. So you have your Ford F-250 and you're ready for adventure, or maybe you're ready for work. Whatever you have in your truck bed, sometimes you might want a headache rack just like this. This is a strong, durable, but also lightweight Headache Rack, which allows or gives protection for your back cab window, but also is nice and sporty looking. So this is the Aries AdvantEDGE Headache Rack. So this is great when matched with the AdvantEDGE series.

So you can find the Aries running boards, as well as the bull bar that will complete your whole set. You can also get this in two different colors. So what I have this in is black. Now you can also get this in chrome powder coated aluminum. So starting from the top we have this track system.

So this is gonna be where you can mount your light bars, let's say you wanna put anchor points, you just mount them right into those tracks. The distance of the channels is gonna be about an inch and three quarter inches apart. Now the width of our headache rack is gonna be about 5 and a half inches. So measuring from one end to another here on our F-250 we have it at around 49 inches of length for that track system. So that top channel can have your light bars.

You can even put up to three light bars on here. Moving down we have our stamped grid. So you have two types of openings here. You have your main opening, which is gonna be for your third brake light. You can see on our F-250 that it's clearly seen, which is great.

You also have your stamped grid. So it still creates that protection, prevent items from falling towards your window, but you can also see out of them. This is all made of a durable rust-proof aluminum. This version has a black powder coat finish, which helps with that corrosion resistance. Very important if you have this outside, even in the rain, even in the storms, so you should be okay. It's gonna work the exact same way for the chrome version. Exact same specs, just a different color. My favorite part about this headache rack is how lightweight it is as well as how easy it is to install. Look at where it sits right here on our truck bed. Even if you had a soft tonneau cover, as long as you're not using those stake pockets, it sits above the bed and not inside the rails. So how much clearance do we have above the cab So measuring some of the top of our cab to the top of the headache rack, it sits at two inches of clearance. So it goes over these. If you have, let's say a ladder rack on top of your roof, you probably won't be able to reach it. But it's nice to see that if you have loads on here, it can clear. I also noticed that it has a very custom fit look to it. As you can see here, it's contoured towards the side of our vehicle, probably just a coincidence, but it does look good on the F250. I do see why it's a series with the bull bar and a running board. You can get the full sporty off-road look. So my personal thoughts about this headache rack is I was really impressed by the install process. I've tried other headache racks that have bolts that go into the stake pockets, then you have to tighten it down on the other side, maybe it installs inside of your truck bed. There's a lot of process to those other headache racks for this one, it was super easy. It just pops into your stake pockets. It sits above your truck bed. So I'm super impressed by how easy it was. Even I could install it with no issues at all. So comparing this with those other headache racks, we have different options here at etrailer. We have more premium options, more affordable options. If you're looking for something more affordable, but with less protection, definitely check out the Buyers Products Headache Rack that is also, does not involve any drilling, but it does have an open bar design. Something a bit more premium would be the B&W Headache Rack that's custom fit for your vehicle that has an included wiring, it has included lights. The downside to that one though is it does involve drilling. It's a bit more permanent and a bit more pricey. So if you have different needs, hopefully this video was able to help you out with figuring out what's the right fit for your cargo, for your work and for your truck. And that was a look here at our Aries, AdvantEDGE Headache Rack, here at each trailer. My name is Evangeline, and I hope you enjoyed the journey..

Get that rugged, aftermarket look while protecting your cab from shifting cargo with this Aries headache rack. Customize with LEDs and tie-down anchors that attach in the top channel. Brake light is clearly seen through the top slot.


Happy with the headache rack, was easy to install and looks great on my F450


Looks great and fits my 08 Tundra well. Good mount for my LED light bar. Not delighted with the mounting system since it required removing the interior stake pockets to get the locks to expand. Also wobbles quite a bit on dirt roads, since it isn't pulling on a lot of sheet metal from my bed. I have plans to add a base plate to stabilize the vibrations, then it will be an outstanding product.


Bolted up no problem , I custom configured mine for a nice ladder rack . ( The top has rails built in for lights , I altered stoppers to fit in the rails) . I cut the horns down to fit the truck under my car lift . Can't tell I cut 1 1/2 out of it .


I'm giving 4 stars because the product itself it's good. etrailer got it to my city pretty quick. I don't know where in the line though since they use ups that my hardware got lost because the box was pretty damaged. I'm actually waiting to hear from etrailet when I'll get my hardware to install. Kind of sucky that once it got to my town it's been sitting for almost a month to get delivered to me and I just ended having to go pick it up anyways. Then to find out I still can't put on my truck because of poor shipping handling. The lady that helped me to hopefully get my hardware here was very nice and helpful. Let's just see how long it takes to get my hardware though.


Perfect fit, easy to install, looks great. Really sets off those pipes.


Fit and finish were excellent! I placed a small strip of rubber (old mud flap) between the headache rack and truck bed to protect the truck bed paint in case in the future I want to remove the headache rack.


great product! I actually own an engraving shop and engraved the access plates for the bolt holes with the Gadsden coiled rattlesnake. Made it even better. I am constantly getting compliments about my "awesome" truck. As usual trailer customer service and ordering process is second to none.


It only bolts down with two bolts. The bolts have vibrated loose several times. I have to check that it is secure often. Other then that, great product.


Very nice headache rack. The only down side to this particular model is you cannot go through a carwash with it on since it stands above the roof of the truck


Looks great, but the way it is secured to my truck could be better. I have to tighten the bolts every couple months, and even after tightening it, it still wobbles a bit. It still get the job done but wish it would have a stronger hold onto my truck bed.


I am very happy with the quality as well as the price.
All my friends asked about it and were equally impressed.
Shipping was painless and on time.
No expense was spared on the amazing hold down
