Hi Gary...welcome to the board....congrats on our purchase....

Sounds like you got a fairly good setup...but we do have some training to do....
...disco something...
Those would be "disconnects". You pull the pin, push your front sway bar up out of the way and it improves your articulation. Don't will get there.
But it does help if you let us know what you plan to do with it. If your planning on doing some real off-roading then it sounds like you have a good head start on the hardware....but if you just want it for the looks......well....ok....we won't go there....

What part of CA? If you in the LA area I know a good fab guy who can build you anything you want.

If you take a pic and post we can geve you a few more details on what you have.

One thing that comes to mind first....32" tires? Do you know if he changed the axle ratio? Because you have an auto, it's not too bad...but you are on the border of needing a higher ratio gear....especially if you want to some serious off-roading.

Get back with us and we'll take it from there.

After you know what you want get ahold of Welcome to DC's 4 Wheel Parts Center! DC has the best prices I have ever seen, have used him several times, no problem. As for a bumper/gas can/hilift/spare combo, shoot a PM to Jeff, known as Rio Grande.
