Can I use BACKRACK™ with my Toolbox?

If you drive a truck that has a toolbox, you may be wondering whether you’ll still be able to get all of the benefits offered by BACKRACK™ truck racks. The good news is – you can. When we designed our high quality truck racks, we took into account the many accessories truck owners might have such as bed liners, Tonneau covers, and, yes, toolboxes.

It never ceases to amaze us, how varied our customers are. BACKRACK™ customers range from those who want to have our truck racks for personal use, to those who use them for business. Our customers can be found in the construction industry, the agricultural sector, and in the mining sector – to name a few.

And since many of our customers use toolboxes, we needed to make sure that we could accommodate them.

Mounting your BACKRACK™ when you have a toolbox

In order to install one of our truck racks in a vehicle that has a toolbox, special brackets are required. The way it works is that the toolbox will sit on top of two channels against the BACKRACK™ with minimal space in between. And the best part? It can all be done without drilling a single hole in your truck. BACKRACK™ products are easy to install regardless of what kind of accessories you are using with your vehicle.

If you are ordering your BACKRACK™ new, be sure to let us know that you have a toolbox and we will provide you with toolbox mounting brackets instead of the standard ones.

If you already have a BACKRACK™ on your truck but are planning to add a toolbox, you may also purchase the toolbox mounting brackets from us separately.

A secure and durable solution

Nothing matters more to the team at BACKRACK™ than providing a quality product. Our truck racks, which are made right here in North America, are extremely durable and will look great on your vehicle for years to come.

Whether you choose to mount your truck rack with or without a toolbox, your truck rack needs to do its job – to keep your cargo, your truck and the people around you safe. This means that our toolbox mounting systems need to be as secure and as well-constructed as all of our other products. And they are.

If you use a toolbox with your truck, you can feel confident that with our truck racks, your items are safely secured inside your truck bed and you won’t have to worry about your toolbox – or any other item – sliding around and causing damage.

We cater to trucks and toolboxes of many sizes

At BACKRACK™, we pride ourselves on being able to provide our signature truck racks to customers with a wide range of vehicle makes and models. We can also accommodate multiple sizes of truck toolboxes ranging from the standard 21 inches right up to mammoth 31-inch boxes.

We believe that you should never have to choose between having a toolbox and having a high quality truck rack. If you want both, you should have both!
