Weather Guard CabMax Composite Bulkhead

The main purpose for installing a bulkhead is to provide a layer of safety between people in the cab and gear in the back. Steel is a popular choice thanks to its strength. The Weather Guard CabMax uses a composite material that’s just 55 pounds—roughly 25% lighter than steel options.

Because the fit is custom, it’s also tight, reducing noise from the storage area and making your AC and heat more effective for you and your passenger.

It installs in under an hour using OEM mounting points and holes, so there’s less overall drilling you need to do and no drilling into the floor. Its design also automatically adapts to your floor height.


Once you have the Weather Guard CabMax up, it leaves enough space for a full range of motion on your seat, including the ability to recline up to 35º. According to WeatherGuard, that’s the largest range of motion you’ll find.

To make it more than just a separator, Weather Guard designed the CabMax as a system that becomes functional. There are multiple accessory panels you can install in 14 locations. There are window panels to help you maintain a line of sight and a dog hatch that lets you run longer material through the bulkhead. Other panels help you organize gear and other necessities.
