basic head ache rack (what's this called?)
Im looking to add a "roll-bar" like headache rack. Not like the one on the avalanche, nothing attached to body, purely for cosmetic look, heres a picture for reference i dont know what the name is called
i'd really like to find a simple one to go on the back of my bed as the truck is really a good looking truck AND it has a LWB which is a major plus and i believe this will help even out the look so the bed doesnt stick out so much making my ride look like a "truck limo" so to speak.

You're looking for a "LIGHT BAR" with an areo shape. I did some googling and didn't find one. They were kind of an 80's & 90's thing, hard to find now, probably.

thanks for the link but theres not one like im looking for among the first 4-5 pages of what their offering, although they do have some catchy styles if money was not an option.
What i want is something more like whats posted above, i assume i might have to get something made out of fiberglass, the one i actually saw in person was really flimsy almost "tacky" looking plastic that had been simply screwed into the bed on each side, just a little thin piece of aerdoynamic plastic or fiberglass to give "the look."
maybe i should start looking for one of these at a flea-market, but on the other hand, if i did have to seek someone out to make something like this, where would i start?

If you want to get one made, put a steel frame roll bar kinda thing under it. Look for fiberglass fabrication shops. Problem is though, to do a 'one off' job like this they would cost you a second mortgage.

A real head ache rack is used to keep cargo from slamming into the cab of a truck/semi or p/u and killing or crushing the driver. Maybe you should look for a truck outfitter dealer or H.D. truck parts dealer.2007 Suburban 2500 Edge evolution CS leveled 265 goodyear Silent Armor Pro Grade Kenwood DNX6180 Nav.Radio

I'd call it a cab fairing. Lund used to have a couple of offerings, and there may be other companies.
I did a image search for "racerback" and found some stuff that way. I haven't seen many of them installed in quite awhile, either.

What are you wanting to put it on? You might be able to find one in a bone yard."It went together didn't it? Well then there has to be a way to take it apart!" - Me.
