Default Crank install, what else

Need to put in a new crank. Sadly mine only had 168,000, but I lost the rear bolt holes due do a faulty flexplate.
I found a crank with low miles (supposedly 84,000). I've read that replacing main bearings can actually cause more wear to a crank on these?
Say I don't replace the main bearings, just the main bolts (with 12.9's) , but get some Rosten rods and arps, new KS rod bearings, and some new rings (since I'll have to pull the pistons anyway.
Thoughts on this?
I'd like to leave the top half of the engine together and avoid any line honing.
Engine ran great before, but rings are cheap and if I have to pull the pistons anyway... just not sure on cylinder wall ridge and new rings.
Cheers!
