Ford Transit Headliner Shelf DIY Kit

Free shipping, made in the USA. Looking for a pre-built shelf? Check out our Aluminum Headliner Shelf.

A unique van must be built, not bought. Use our 3D-scanned template to craft a perfectly tailored headliner shelf out of plywood, then paint, stain, or fabric wrap it to perfectly match your van’s interior. Mount it with the included hardware and call it a day.

Stop looking at that unused space above the driver and passenger seat and turn it into functional storage. A headliner shelf means the end of shuffling around bags, jackets and personal items around the front cabin.

You'll save 70% compared to a generic metal shelf, which means investing that hard earned cash towards a lithium battery bank, van awning, or your next trip. 

Detailed instructions walk you through the entire process, prompt service is one email away to get answers to your questions. Save yourself from the endless scrolling on YouTube or the Ford Transit forums and nail down a solution to this problem now.

Unlike other manufacturers who ran off to lower-cost overseas manufacturing (while pretending like you wouldn't notice), we've retained all our manufacturing in the US and partnered with suppliers who employ those with visual and learning disabilities.

And always remember how expensive divorces are. Your clever and forward thinking approach to van storage will win you the approval of your spouse and reduce the chances of a messy split.

      Basic woodworking skills: You're already building out a van - this is easy in comparison!

      Required tools: Jigsaw with a wood-cutting blade, drill with 9/32” and 7/32” bit, wood glue, scissors, clear packing tape, ⅜” (14 mm) wrench, 7 mm socket, Philips screwdriver, and pencil.

      We recommend 1/2" Baltic Birch if staining or painting, or 1/2" bamboo plywood if leaving it untreated. But ¾” plywood can work too! More details on working with the plywood are foundhere.

      We suggest a maximum load of 50 lbs.

      Our understanding is that the airbags deploy downwards from the plastic trim above the windows. This particular zone is mounted lower than the shelf would be. We have left an inch spacing on each side for a little bit of expansion, and our brackets slide into the existing console mounts. We've been cognizant to not interfere with any of the vehicle systems, but please note that we haven't done a live test or claim any safety guarantee.

      Yes, our 2015+ Ford Transit DIY Kit works on both mid and high-roof vans with factory overhead shelf. On mid-roof vans, it has an opening of roughly 8" from the ceiling center to the top of the shelf without the front flange, while on high-roof, it has an opening of roughly 12" from the ceiling center to the top of the shelf without the front flange.
