Default 2.75Mi Wireless Bridge Advice Req'

Hello everyone,
I stumbled upon this forum and it looks like this is the place to be. Lots of info for my issue. I wanted to describe my situation in hopes I could get some good advise on how to go about this bridge.

I currently have a 20/20 FIOS connection at home. I have the opportunity to move to a family ranch, but its "in the sticks." There is no DSL or broadband aside from 3G/Satellite. I am a computer tech and I really need more then what these offer. I would prefer to get my own FIOS connection at my friends residence (he has cable modem but FIOS is available) and set up a wireless link.

He is 2.75 Miles away. I will be going out tomorrow to see if we have LOS, but it appears we should, or be quite close to it. I have a large parabolic antenna already from the past but I dont know if this is the one to use. I also have a DLink bridge and panel antenna from back when I used to "borrow" neighbor's internet.

So I suppose my first questions would be, what type of equipment should I be looking at, can I use any of these antennas? And WHERE can I buy the things I need at a decent price? Please, if I have forgotten any information needed to answer questions let me know!
