Upgrading Everything!

Well... not everything, yet..
Heres what i got:
99 Ranger 2.5l 4cyl, 5speed
Single cab, Short Bed, 2WD, XL, w/ AC
White Ext paint, gray vinyl, no power/tilt/cloth/Cruise control
37,000 mi !!!

I want:
Cloth Buckets
The door Panels with Pockets
01ish Tail lights (not sure)
Overhead Console
LEDs/HIDs everywhere
Gauge Cluster with Tach
Fog Lights
Newer Year Mirrors (the squarish ones)

I really want, but just dont know enough info yet:
Power Windows
Power Door Locks
Cruise Control
8.8 Rear End swap w/4.11 (open for aftermarket limited slip)
Updated Front Clip

Heres some Google images brainstorming ive done, Im just tryin to make the truck a lil nicer of a daily driver, using craigslist for parts and such.

Im going over numerous forums, i guess im making an XLT, or half XLT package build.
Im not good with ranger years yet, im goin over pictures, but its not stickin yet. What Years are these things in the pictures, Cant find the flashcard thread yet lol
What am i Forgetting here? Basic mods n such... Please add to the list! (just short of 4.6 swaps n such)

I know your prolly thinking, Are ya stupid? buy a truck with all that stuff in it...
The truck is very clean, 37k mi on it, runs like a champ, i know the original owner, so i dont wanna let go of it. (its a project right?)

check ebay.

Seats are tough to come by, and are hit and miss. for you mirrors, you look at about $150 for a set of heated, power mirrors.

To do the front end conversion, I believe you need a new header panel as well
