Merritt has become known as the top builder of high performance, high quality aluminum products for trucking professionals. Industry proven and battle tested for over 50 years, Merritt cab guards have been refined to a point that approaches perfection. A new technology alloy provides an improved weight to strength ratio for increased safety and load capacity. This breakthrough has allowed Merritt to decrease the I-beam profile by a full inch and still retain all prior strength ratings. The outer edge of the rack features the Dyna-Tube extrusion for a smooth tough border, and the corners are shaped with an aerodynamic radius for improved fuel efficiency and amazing strength. The new 4" foot assembly provides increased trailer clearance, more durability and easier mounting. The super-sturdy 5" uprights require less mounting space than other models and have an unsurpassed load rating. The entire working surface of the rack is fully coated with the Diamond Plate finish for maximum weather resistance and long lasting durability. All Merritt cab guards are independently tested by an outside engineering firm, and comply with D.O.T. 393.106. Mounting hardware sold separately to match your specific application.
