    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    They should have been included with the set.

    Measure the spring+nut+plate+shim(if any)+3/4"=u-bolt legnth.
    Or, get very long ones and trim.

    4 wheel parts gave me the wrong u-bolts for my dakars. Make sure they are labeled with the correct part number. The correct u-bolts should measure 7 1/4" in length IIRC. The ones they gave me measured 6 1/2". I put them on temporarily WITHOUT the washers so I could have as much thread contact as possible.
