what the hell is hanging out of my car?

Don't know whether these items are important or not, and I'm not very educated in mechanical/car parts

I'd be more concerned about those leaf springs.

I cant tell what the second thing is (can you get a better picture?) but the first looks a LOT like an e brake cable.

The second thing would be the vacuum lines to the CAD on the front axle.

and x2 those leaf springs are sketchy looking

hm... well I talked to my friend who's a mechanic and he told me the things that were hanging out had to do with the 4wd.

Yeah, the plug type thing with 3 small colored plastic lines going into it is for your 4x4 and connects to your CAD on the front axle.

Hmm everything seems to be in place now, how could I make sure the 4x4 works?

Put it in 4wd, jack up front passenger side axle and try to spin the tire. If it doesnt spin then youre good. If it does then youre CAD is not operating properly
