Default Back Rack / Headache Rack question

I'm looking into one of these in the near future. I pulled my toolbox on the weekend and test fitted my bike in the back and its almost a perfect fit. Theres about 3 inches between the bumper and the rear window. As much as I want a sliding rear window, I'd like to swap it when the right time comes

So my question/request; can someone tell me how they mount? Are they just like a J hook like the toolbox or do they screw into the bedsides?

headache racks mount on the top of the bed next to the rear window using an L type connector using nuts, bolts and washers.

I haven't got to have a close look at anyones truck with one on. I was hoping to see a picture of how they bolt on. At a quick glance, it looks like they screw into the bed rails and I don't want to do that.

yes, they bolt onto the bed rails, they do that so, you have maximum bed usage
