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!

Replaced the front grill with glossy black on my 2020 PX4, looks like this on the left, but the grill matches the paint.

Also received but haven't yet installed the OEM running board you see on the left pic. I went with those because my stepfather is 86 and they also match the roof rack.

Also bought the Midnight front Nissan logo but decided it didn't work on my truck. If anyone is interested let me know.

Alldogs Offroad UCAs installed and alignment.
I have these too and they're beefy and don;t make any detectable noise / squeaks. If you're on the fence about making the purchase, just mash the Buy It Now button.

New OEM hood guard & finished up my tow wiring. Factory relay harness under the kick panel, Hopkins 43534 for the trailer hookup which is a plug and play 4 way & 7 way combo connector made for Nissans. Of course, since I bought the factory tow wiring kit and didn't use the trailer plug, I now have a factory 7-way for sale. Yay.

I like how the dark hood guard is practically invisible on the black truck. You barely even know it's there, yet it's providing the protection it should.
