Can someone post up what additional hardware I need after buying one of the dual band Yaesu rigs, an external speaker, and an antenna?

I would like like to run the detachable faceplate above the windshield, the mic next to the console, the guts in back, a speaker in the stock dash location, and an antenna on the rear hatch. Without the equipment, I don't know what needs to be purchased and ran while the headliner and interior is out of the truck. I have already run ought gauge to the rear from the dual batteries to a distribution panel and ought gauge to chassis ground. I read Nathaniel's posts on ground straps to that will be added.

UB mentioned the radio is cat5e and the faceplate is either RJ48 or RJ11...
I assume the junk in back needs clean power and ground.
