What Gauge Steel Are the B&W Truck Cab Protectors/Headache Racks Made From


I have a 2012 F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab Single Side with an 8foot long bed 4x4. Q: What type and gauge of steel/metal is this rack made of? Q: Will it work with a Truck Cover USA Tonneau? Specifically their American Work Cover with built in tool box?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I spoke with my contact and B&W and the Custom Headache Rack # BWPUCP7500WA is made of 10 gauge steel except for the flat plates that attach to the bed sides. Those are 7 gauge.

This rack is not tested with toolboxes or tonneau covers so it is difficult to determine if it will work in conjunction with those items. It likely will not work if the tonneau cover blocks the lip in the inner part of the bed sides.
