    Has anyone heard of Pro Racks. They are made in America, and look exactly like a Back Rack??? Just wondering if any one has heard of them?? I first found them on Ebay, then when I looked at the back rack page they listed http://bigboys-customtoys.com/Default.asp? as a web seller and they carry both brands.

    Hmmm thats weird. I bet I know why back racks are 4 bucks more. Cause they had to pay for the extra letter to be vinyled. :drinkup:

    I picked one up at an auction for $40 with 4 work lights on it. They are perfect for putting lights on, holding lightbars, resting ladders against, tieing stuff to,etc.

    Commonly called a headache rack, to prevent a headache should your load come flying forward.

    My dad has a Back Rack on his truck and its made in Canada, then the Pro Rack says made in the USA, just wondering if anyone knew if it was the same company setting up shop here under a different name. Thanks for all the opinions.

    Hey Guys - Ask and you shall receive!

    I was puzzled about this issue myself so I found you an answer!

    The following is a email I received from the president of back-rack:

    I have seen the Pro rack on ebay as well. It is the same as the back rack. It just says Pro Rack. That style is nice, i like it better than the full one

    Sorry to bring this back up but I don't think what the president of BackRack wrote is correct. I believe that the president of BackRack is just looking to protect his business, so it is no surprise to me that he wrote what he wrote.

    The units are nearly identical!!!
