Default 2006 4.7 what can i do ?

Hey guy's. I'm semi new here so go easy with me.

I have a 2006 Ram that has served me reliably for many years. I pull a 6500lbs travel trailer with it once a year from Toronto to NC. I have been looking at a 2011 1500 and 2500 but other than being under powered pulling the trailer once a year my 4.7 is not yet worth replacing.

At start up i have a very small exhaust leak so mechanic suggested i spend some money on some mods that might gain me a little extra torque/hp for the annual pull.

Naturally i came to you guys to set me in the right direction.I'm not looking for gadgets to play with,or other hobbies just want plug and play reliability as breakdowns while in the mountains with a 30+ TT are not fun.

What are your thoughts ?
