Default 91 3.0 A/C overhaul

I have had my Ranger for 3 years now. For all 3 years I have driven mostly in town and never really needed A/C cause i would just roll down the window and everything was good. However, I just graduated college and now have a big boy job that requires me to commute on the highway this summer and i am not looking forward to the partial hearing loss I will suffer and trucks throwing shit through my window when they pass me. So I am now looking at repairing my A/C system. The truck has a retrofit kit on it. I took it to a mechanic once to have the system recharged and he told me that it would blow a little cold air but none of the lines would get cold. It says they probably did a shotty job on the retrofit and there probably is a bunch of sludge in the system, and I will need to replace the whole system. He told me that it wouldn't be worth him to try and repair and suggested I do it myself to save money. I have now built of some money and would like to take on this project before it gets to hot.

My question is: What parts will I need in order to properly replace the A/C system to make sure I get rid of what I assume is the "Black Death".
