Default How is the box attached to the frame?

I have a 2019 ford ranger 4x4 crew cab. I am curious how the box is mounted to the frame. Just looking at it I cant say Ive seen any large bolts (though they probably were painted and now hidden under a spray on). Assuming I dont get it undercoated, I may at least want to attack these mounting points in some way to prevent something similar to what happened to my 98 (you can lift one corner of it's box) Not sure if it's due to rust from the top down or the bottom up, but either way...

Is there a technical diagram of these somewhere? Ive seen how it's made type tv episodes for trucks, I think there is 4 to 10 bolts they just set it down with a crane and bolt it on. I dont think there's any fancy stuff going on under there, other than the wiring connection for the camera and lights.
