What are these "Simpson Ties" you speak of, got a link to them?I was looking for a quick easy way to mount a shovel for a trip to great sand dunes and Medano pass. I had some extra spring nuts for the utili-track, and I noticed that heavy duty Simpson strong-ties are just the right size to sit over the tracks. The large holes in the ties are just the right size for the spring nut bolts, and there are small holes that you can attach quick fists to. I put some large washers between the ties and the tracks, but honestly I’m not sure they were necessary. I drove over some pretty rough roads last week and this ended up being pretty solid, the shovel Never budged. It has to be the heavy duty Simson ties, on the regular ones the holes are too small and they’re also probably too flexible. I ended up never needing the shovel but I felt better knowing it was there driving though the soft deep sand!
