5.3 vortec build summer of 13'

Well plan is to put my 5.3 vortec in my 97 wrangler se. I've got the motor and a big list of things I soon plan on buying. Can you help me out with things I may be missing....
Plan is:
5.3 vortec
Headers idk what to buy
700r4 mechanical (less electrical the better in deep water I figure)
original t-case. (np231) I believe.
beef up the front and rear axles. 30 spline with detroit lockers.
fuel pump? will stock 4cyl work for stock or cammed 5.3?

I know I need an adapter for the tranny to t-case. Im interested in piggy-backing the engine ecm to the wranglers computer to save money and sticking with the belt driven fan. Can you help me with my "parts list"?
