Leveling kit or turbo back exhaust?

Alright all looking for some input... Should I make my first upgrade (other than the bull bar) be a leveling kit or 4" turbo back exhaust. Looks like the previous owner put some blocks in the rear causing the rear to sit at about 44.5"-45" and the front is still at 41ish. I am a motorhead though and like performance parts so I need some outside opinions to sway my decision. If your choice is level how about some brand ideas...I've done some looking, but there's a lot of choices out there.

Thanks for the input

Well i would prolly go with the exhaust if you can stand it being unlevel. Would be a good start to performance upgrades. If you level it you gotta get bigger tires because it sounds like your about 3 inches off back to front. Just my 2 cents.

4" MBRP Straight Pipe from FCDP- $260.

And I would lose the bull bar, I think your truck would look killer without it.

Yeah I was leaning towards exhaust also. I can't straight pipe it here I have to go through emissions and they check to make sure you have a cat and muffler. Yeah it did look good before the bull bar, but I wanted something to mount some lights to and don't like most of the light bars out there.
