    Hi all,

    I've decided I'd like to get a headache rack for my Tundra and it looks like Magnum https://magnumtruckracks.com/truck-racks makes a good product. I'm just having a hard time deciding whether to go with the Sport rack or the High Pro. I was leaning towards the sport, but I'll need the rack to be above the cab just enough so that I can mount a warning light to the top of the rack with the Magnum center mount light bracket without it coming in contact with the top of the cab. I'd also like to use their bed rails, but it doesn't look like that is possible with a toolbox.

    Anyone have any experience with the different models Magnum has?
    Thanks.

    How did you make out on this? I'm almost a year behind you, but also looking at racks from Magnum.

    I went with the sport rack. Install was really easy except that they mis-wired one of the lights (swapped the tail and brake light). They gave me a couple hundred dollar refund for that simple error which I fixed myself. My only other complaint that might not be a fault of the rack itself is that the powder coating is starting to flake off towards the bottom where the lid of my tool box had been touching the rack when opened.

    I had headache racks on most of my work trucks for about 30 years. I’m not sure where you are at in these Great United States, but in the southwest, I tried to always get the infill done with louvers.

    Would you mind sharing a couple pics of your magnum rack with toolbox? I have a weatherguard box I'd like to keep but am worried it it too wide for the tundra-specific magnum rack.

    Sorry for not replying sooner. Life/work caused me to forget about this site for awhile. Not the best pics, but the box fits fine. It's just a cheap one I got used. Actually had the box before I got the truck.
