All-Aluminum Switchback™ Proves a Benefit to Dealers and Consumers

Eau Claire, WI -- August 28, 2017 -- ARIES, a fast-paced marketer and innovator of truck, Jeep, SUV and CUV accessories, has released a new highly functional and edgy-looking headache rack called the Switchback™. This patent-pending headache rack is lightweight, rust-free and LED-customizable. It also features a particularly unique construction, benefiting both dealers and consumers.

The Switchback™ headache rack is built from powder-coated aluminum to be completely resilient to rust and to complement the fuel-efficiency of today’s pickup trucks. It also features a slotted top edge for mounting LED light bars and work lights. The slotted design accommodates multiple lights and allows for easy adjustment (three ARIES 10” light bars #1501260 recommended). The Switchback™ also has an edgy design with its wide, angular sides and octagonal grid center, offering an aggressive, customized look on modern trucks.

While these features alone set the Switchback™ apart as a unique headache rack, perhaps its most unique feature is its three-piece construction. It is comprised of three primary pieces – two sides and a center section. This three-piece, knockdown assembly allows the Switchback™ to be shipped in a smaller, more manageable box and reduces the overall cost of the product for both the dealer and consumer. The three pieces bolt together with strong grade-8 hardware, and most Switchback™ models install into the pickup truck with the ARIES patented stake pocket clamp system.

The Switchback™ headache rack is currently available for the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Toyota Tacoma. Several more applications, including for the Ford F150 and Ram 1500, will be coming soon.
