Nice! Like it never happened. All over but the check cashin'.

I didn't like how the bumper looked, it was my best 521 bumper, so I did this.

I did that to break up the straight lines on the bumper that were wavy, I used 2 not so great 320 bumper over riders and ground them to fit the 521 bumper, none of my extra 521 bumpers are nice anymore, so I suppose when I see one for sale I will buy it if it is not too expensive.

The clutch pedal started vibrating a while back at times, so I put a new collar/throw out bearing in today before it started to rain, all I did was slide the transmission back just far enough to get it out and back in, I also put one of my new clutch arm seals in it, looked good in there, it only took a few hours, it kinda funny but I figure out new ways to do this removing the transmission job as I get older, the only thing I have to do under the hood is remove the battery cable and take the top starter bolt out, the rest is done under the truck.
So far it has not vibrated since, but that would be only a 6 block drive, I think I also need to replace the rear seal now, I believe I can do that while the transmission is in the truck.
I hauled 2 yards of dirt Friday and it was vibrating about 50 percent of the time I pushed on the pedal that day, I pulled a juniper type bush out with the truck last Thursday, then Friday morning I re-did my cement block wall around the pine tree in the front yard to include where I pulled the juniper bush out.
I only had to buy 4 more blocks to create what I did, it held 2 yards of dirt.
I will take a couple photos tomorrow and post them.

I guess I forgot to post photos of what I did, or maybe I posted them in the around the house thread, but here they are, that wall used to be a circle around the tree, everything with darker dirt was added onto the circle.

You can see the circle in the background of this photo and the Juniper that used to be there.

OK, this is what I did today, not much but it took a while because I had to add to the bottom of the rack upright so it would be the same height as the front rack, I originally planned on putting the pocket for this on the inside of the 2X6 rear board, but that was not possible so I made a pocket on the outside, it doesn't stick out that far so I am not worried and the pocket has no bottom so any dirt will just fall all the way thru on to the ground.
This rear rack is for the hauling of my ladder around because I do a lot of gutter cleaning now, I don't pressure that much anymore and I get terrible mileage hauling the trailer around, I have been resting the ladder on the front rack and the rear piece of wood on the rear of the bed, but the front of the ladder stuck up really high that way and driving it that way was very noisy wind wise(whistling), this rack is removable but I am hoping it will just dump right past the rack upright when I dump a load of debris, I made it so it is really tight in the pocket so I don't have to listen to it rattling around.
