Great looking rig Kenneth. Too bad our boy has left the Forum. He would love that truck. Also, is a headache rack not as important these days? CAW

Gregg: He is still very much into this hobby. However, he has chosen to leave the Forum for personal reasons. I hope he returns as he is one of the most knowledgeable guys in the hobby, as well as a great guy.

Not so much on the RGN's. The load would have to come up over the neck to get to the tractor. That has happened, but that is usually from improper chaining. If that were to happen, a headache rack is not going to help you much.You can get away without one pulling a step or a flat if the piece isn't too big and you use a double securement on the very front.
