MSMOG, in your post (#1022), the object in question in picture #1 is a little retaining rod for the bracket that is just to the 4:00 of your finger. See the other little rod just like it, but with a pin in it? You'd pull that pin out, swivel the bracket upward to be over the peg you're pointing at, and then put the pin back in that peg. Then you can't accidentally slam your bucket into the ground while driving down the highway. There is one on each side of the bucket.
My boot/seal for the bucket controls is trashed too. Lemme know if ya find a replacement!
My exhaust was crushed exactly like yours.
My truck came with the single work light on the left side of the bucket arms.
Both my fenders needed some pall peen hammering, they turned out pretty darn good.
