Default NOLA-based Ranger being prepared for expedition

Hello Ranger owners. I am UK-based, but keep a 2000 Ranger in the US... tired of paying Avis's payroll. The truck will probably get only 5k a year use until it is kitted out as an expedition vehicle for a three-month outing to Prudoe Bay and back, visiting all those beautiful North American sites we never had a chance to see before our careers called us overseas. That trip is scheduled for summer 2019 or 2020 to allow for planned, affordable, mostly bespoke mods and outfitting. Been gone 40 years, but coming home still preferring to push a Ford than drive a Chevy.
2000 US-built standard cab/long bed. 2WD 3L 6-cyl flex fuel on a 5-spd manual trans. c103k miles @ 1/4/2017. Parked near New Orleans for use as a hack when we make trips back to the US. Two-year time frame for it to be made into an expedition vehicle. Only mod to date is addition of front grill and engine protection. Mods with weight to be added before building suspension, e.g. topper, rear bumper/tailgate rack, rack for overhead tent. Advice and suggestions welcomed.
