CV shafts
Bearing assemblies that are hellishly expensive
the little plastic snap rings that hold the CV shafts in.. ~$17-22 each is what i've paid
manual locking hubs

i think thats it

Later on i plan on putting a locker in front and would like to have manual hubs so I can still mall crawl.

EDIT: As far as offroading....haven't been in a while due to all the places I know of got shut down by cops.
