Hey guys, I've been using pickup trucks with utility bodies for years. I just bought my first van to use as a service truck. I have some metal van shelving that I want to install in it and also a customer shelf that I made myself for various materials.

I was wondering the best (or at least the standard) way to attach these shelves to the truck. I assume drilling and bolting through the floor is standard. How do you attach the top portion of the shelves to the framing members to stop the shelf from toppling over?

Does anyone have pics? This is one of those things that I've seen a thousand times but never noticed the actual mounting method, and I just want to be sure I do it correctly for safety.

Thanks!

I have metal brackets, you can also use metal straps or angle bracket, which ever works best and easier to attach.
