    I dunno about leveling kits.....Id say they are all about the same. Not too awful many ways to make a leveling kit except for difference in heights. I think they make a 2.5 but not sure. I went with a lift instead. As far as power.....Im running a Diablo Predator. It wakes one up. Id liked to have had this before Iput a lift on it....woulda been eatn Fords n s***'n Dodges!

    I would definitely get a cold air intake.I just this past weekend put a Volant CAI on my truck. I can definitely tell a noticeable difference in the way it runs. I would also get a exhaust system. I personally am running a Flowmaster, but there are many other good kinds like Corsa, Barola, and Magnaflow. Then I would also get a tuner. I'm plan on getting a Diablo Trinity, but there are other kinds of Diablos. It depends on what you are looking to spend. Good look with your mods. those would definitely wake your truck up.
