Intake is just for looks, exhaust is for sound. Gears sounds like a good starting point

Depends on how you want to drive..auto or manual? Daily driven? Strip car? Track car? Going to need a tuner if you want all this done at once and I recommend getting a tuner with a set of gears as the first thing. Then open up exhaust and some suspension work.

Well you will suck a lot of gas on the highway with any steeper gear especially if you're going to be on it like you say. But if that's not an issue and you want pep go for it.

If gas is no problem then go with 4.10 for sure! You'll be glad you did.

Once gears are in you'll need a speedo recal. tool or a tuner to set speedo and odom.. Not necessarily need but they will be off. Just FYI. Like someone stated above a gear and tuner combo from AM would be the way to go if you got the extra $$$ and install is a pretty penny not sure exactly but mine was 700 but I changed axles. $300 to be safe....

Check the bolt on sticky.

gears, tuner, exhaust are the best bolt ons in my opinion, ive done all three recently. With the tuner you can adjust your gear ratio to so the odometer and speedometer wont be inaccurate.
