I have a full size ford and am pricing some shelving. Two I have looked into is American Van and Weatherguard. Weatherguard makes a Electrical Contractors package which retails for about 2,200. Does anyone know any other brands and what kind of shelving works best for your truck.

Depends on local distribution.... Some others may not be available without huge shipping...

Or you could mix and match....

Personally I like the Weatherguard Pack Rat drawers.

Kevlok shelving is another option, but it's certainly not cheap:

I believe that GMC, Chevy & Ford all offer money towards shelving for commercial buyers.

I 2nd the AmericanVan company. They have an awful lot of good, quality products and their customer service has for me been second to none. Now if I could only get those ladder racks to stop vibrating!!

I bought a new Ford E-250 last December and the shelves came stock. I'm not exactly ecstatic with the layout, but it does the job and everything is so far still sturdy.

Good luck.

When I bought my last van I wasn't to excited about the stock layout either but I was able to talk to the shelving company and trade shelves, move them around and purchase additional shelving and drawers at a good price.

Dear Bot,
Before you buy check out E-bay. My boss wanted a greenlee hydralic punch set and I found one on e-bay for half the price. Might be worth a look see for you.

Thanks guys, I've looked on ebay and haven't found anything yet. I think I will save a little more for the American Van shelves, and probally throw a rat pack on the back floor.

I took the plain jane shelving package(cheapest) one they had.

Then spent my money on good plastic organizers and bins for the shelves..

Works out well for me..
