    I looked all threw the old post,and didnt find anything on this topic,but if any one know how much does a headache rack weigh,please post it,my truck came with a aluminum one and i need to take it off,trying to see if i need some heavy equipment to move it or is it a 1 man or 2 man job once i take the u bolts off,i dont think its that heavy but i need to take it off so i can haul containers if i go that route,thanks in advance to any ops or drivers who know the answer i even searched google and truck accesories web sites,none of them say how heavy, it only says how wide and long,but no mention of weight.Thanks in advance

    They weight 200-300 pounds depending on what style you have. I have taken them off by myself. Having 1 other person will make it pretty easy.

    Mine was an aluminum with two chain hangers and a chain tray. Just the generic one you see on most trucks

    Just got through fooling with a Merritt 3 door headache rack that I bought off a member on here.
    Picked it up in Georgia and brought it back to missouri, offloaded it, reloaded it on a ramp trailer, then off the trailer, and forklifted onto the truck.

    Two of us could lift it, though the forklift made it easier to get it 4 feet off the ground. I'd have to guess at it being in the 150-250 lb range - just the size and shape of it made it a bit awkard to handle.
