I would like to build up my Surly Cross Check to a light to mid touring machine. I currently have the Surly standard build with a double ring up front and 9-speed out back with STI shifters. I want to change to mountain riser bars, touring-quality triple cranks and trigger shifters. Any suggestions on what parts would be the most rugged without really high$$$$?

You may want to ask this question on the Touring forum.

The standard Cross Check build is fine for touring.

don't know why you'd want risers for touring, but I'm sure you've gotten that already.
