Ok so I'm fed up with the gym I go to. Too many certified trainers with certifiable opinions. I'be been aske not to do KB swings anywhere they might fly out my hands and injure someone nor property.....I asked where and they told me that was exactly the point....anyhow here goes.

Concept 2 rower
TAPS
paralletes
plyo box
ab mat
300# weights + bar

I already have 2 20# dynamax balls, 1 pood KB, 1.5 pood KB, power rings and I think that's it. I don't have much room to put it in but figured this would give me as complete a gym as I could ask for. any ideas or suggestions?

Pullup bar is a must have.

I'll echo Justin's recommendation - grab a copy of the "Garage Gym" CrossFit Journal. It outlines everything you'll need/want and then some for your own garage gym.

Your list, however, would do very nicely.

Justin - the TAPS (Tactical Athlete Pullup System) that Frank mentions is a pullup bar. Looks like a great idea, but its very expensive.

Don't just get any old barbell and weights - get bumper plates. They're safer and you can do more exercises with them because they are "drop-able".

Lincoln is right about the bumper plates, if you can afford them. The ones I have seen are fairly expensive. It would be nice to have them though.

You can get a pair of rubber composite bumpers for $100 - $140. Yes, more expensive than cast iron plates, but a lot less expensive than competition-style bumpers. And about $2,000 less than ONE chromed-up bicep curl machine you might see at any fitness center.

Thanks for the link, Lincoln. Not that I could afford those either, but they are very much more affordable than any of the bumper plates I have seen.
