I could use some advice...

Anyone have a moment to give me an idea of what I should be doing at this point?

I have so much stuff jamming my house, I am sure a lot of it I should just ditch. I have no idea what I should be looking for right now. I spend most of my time in the low 90's looking for gear upgrades.

You're missing poison resistance, so one unlucky breath could end you right there. Wear that Trickery amulet instead of the Weaponmastery; losing pluses on your gear may be annoying but it's not going to kill you. You could also lose a Ring of Speed in exchange for Barahir; you don't really need more than +20 speed for the endgame, especially since you can cast Haste Self at will.

Try to get your CON up. Going from 18/170 to 18/200 CON will get you a lot of extra hitpoints. So again, you might consider swapping a Ring of Speed for that Ring of CON in your backpack (which is, I note, vulnerable to being destroyed by an errant lightning attack as long as it's there). That would let you swap out Isildur and your gloves of Power for Rohirrim and Cammithrim. What you really want, though, is Cambeleg, since they have +2 CON on them.

Most of the weapons in your home aren't ever going to see use. Especially Careth Asdriag, Sting, Glamdring, Nar-I-Vagil, and Nain.

Thanks for pointing out the resist poison. I didn't realize I had lost poison resist when I put on the other amulet. I was so concerned about resist disenchant. There aren't a ton of things that disenchant though, so that easier for me to avoid.

I swapped the +11 RoS for the +6 CON I just found and gained about 200hp.

If you're paranoid about resist disenchantment, use Nain instead of Eorlingas. Or at least keep it as a swap weapon for monsters that can disenchant your stuff.

I am skulking around on level 99 looking for a better bow. From looking at other winning posts I feel like I have the raw stats to take out Morgoth, but I can't even take out Sauron.

One of the issues I have is that I tend to run out of ammunition. What is the best way for me to get loaded up with ammo?

Well, indeed there are too few arrows in the inventory...
You are not playing ironman, so, AFAIK, you have two alternatives:
1) scum for ammo in the dungeon;
or better,
2) recall to town and buy a good stock of ammo and scroll of enchantment. Go heavy on the latter, as you know they tend to fail more and more depending on the plusses already on items.
The black market could have something interesting too.

edit:
Obviously you know you can quiver ammo, so they take just one inventory slot, don't you?

You should be using melee, not shooting. If you wanted to shoot Sauron, you should have hoarded your acid arrows at home in preparation.

Don't get caught in the mindset that rangers must use longbows. Rangers are often better with melee or crossbows.
