Li conversion soon

Im on my 3rd year with my floodies. truck still does what i need it to do (work & back), but I know the day is coming to get new batteries or more batteries to extend range. I would rather get Li batts then add more floodies.
Other than buying a BMS and different wiring for batts what else do I need to do to make the Li conversion? My search leads me to believe i can use all the components that I already have, but not 100% sure. I have Cafe electric controller, manzinita charger. If you know of links to pages that details this info please drop a dime. Thanks

You'll want to reprogram the charger for your new voltage.

Ah thank you, reminds me that the controller will also have to be adjusted.
