Yakima [] OverHaul HD [] Product Tour


For weekend adventures and hardworking weekdays, the Overhaul HD adjustable truck rack offers best-in-class payload and unmatched versatility.

Leveraging our new HD Bars for a 500-lb. on-road carrying capacity, and paired with Yakima’s 300-lb. Off-Road Rating, the OverHaul HD truck rack is the ideal foundation for heavy loads. The crossbar height can be adjusted to suit your needs: way up, for long loads to go over the cab—or down low, to get the rack out of the wind. The uprights are easy to take on and off in minutes, so the truck’s only racked-up when needed.

The OverHaul HD truck rack uses any of our HD Crossbar sizes, and accepts our SideBars™ for attaching off-road and utility accessories. Multiple tie-down points and the ability to fit most truck beds—including select tonneau covers—make this an ultra-functional rack that works and plays as hard as you do.

The Hellwig Difference With @ThisIsNomadic


Last month, we caught up with Blake and Rachel of ThisIsNomadic and their 2001 Ford F250 camper. As full-time travelers and videographers, their job takes them to some remote locations. Considering this rig needs to hold up to some pretty rigorous off-roading, we helped outfit it with our Big Wig front and rear sway bars and Big Wig 5,600-pound air bags to allow the F250 to handle the weight and keep their home on wheels safe and controlled when on or off-road. This video documents their initial impressions of the Hellwig difference and how our products support their journey!
