Transporting Long Cargo with BACKRACK™ & Rear Bar

Carrying long loads such as ladders and lumber in your pick-up truck can be a challenge. Since weight distribution of these items can affect your manoeuverability, anything you can do to improve safety while transporting such items is important. At BACKRACK, we understand that sometimes a truck rack alone is not enough to protect your vehicle and secure everything that you want to transport. That’s why we offer a variety of accessories to suit various needs. In the case of transporting long loads, we recommend the BACKRACK truck rack and rear bar.

How the BACKRACK rear bar protects you truck

Our sturdy rear bar is the ideal accessory if you are going to be using your vehicle to carry long loads that will not fit inside the truck bed. The rear bar keeps items such as ladders and lumber from scraping against your truck.

It also helps keep everything secure by giving you an additional point on which you can secure such loads.

Improved manoeuverability

In addition to helping to keep your vehicle free from dents and scrapes that might be caused by moving cargo, the BACKRACK rear bar can help you retain the manoeuverability of your truck. If long loads are allowed to shift while you are on the road, they can cause unexpected changes to the weight distribution in your vehicle.

Especially if these loads are heavy, such shifts can make steering more challenging and in some cases can even affect the safety of the vehicle.

Better clearance

The BACKRACK truck rack in combination with the rear bar will allow you to travel more places when you are transporting long cargo. The low profile design of the BACKRACK means that you’ll have the clearance you require when driving under bridges and power lines as well as into parking garages.

Longer cargo which is properly secured between the BACKRACK truck rack and rear bar will be much easier to get through these more constricted areas.
