I gathered up all my gear and did a little DIY in the past 2 weeks after finding out about this hang. My Tarp shelter also has 2 GrizzBeaks one on either end, I also have a HH Hex Fly.
I will have some hand warmers and an extra 30* bag, and a thermal blanket I will leave in my truck if I need them later on.
Lowest temp I slept through so far was 37*
I'd slip one of the sleeping bags between your PLUQ and hammock, it'll give you an extra layer of insulation that way and we can always help you snug it up. Throw the pad inside the hammock and lay the fleece liner on top. Use the Thermal blanket and the other sleeping bag for your top quilt, keep the Poncho Liner handy should you need another layer for the top. I've taken a foam pad and a 20 degree bag down to 21 degrees in a lean to, I wasn't very cold but I wasn't comfortable either. Mainly the hard ground kept me up. I didn't see any gloves listed, you'll want to have a pair of those at night as well.
