For 1500s its either or. I didnt know much about 1500s till I joined this forum but most of these guys will swear buy just using the Bilstien 5100 ride height adjustable shock.
For your 2500 I would say an intake and exhaust are good investments, you could always argue that they'll help with full mileage if you have too.
You could also get a little bit bigger of a tire next time they need replaced. Stock tire size is 265/70/17 I believe. You can without a doubt fit 285/70/17. If you could find something around a 305/75/17 or 305/70 they would probably fit without rubbing also. If you have stock wheels you could even go up to 35x12.5 but the wider tire will rub a little bit on your lower control arms at full turn.
Take a look around the forum, theres plenty of different mods guys are doing that may suit your taste better then mine too!
