Mods for my truck?

I own an '06 dually and would like to get a bit more power out of it. It is my daily driver as well. The truck is totally stock. I haul a 32' toy hauler on the weekends and fully loaded with the quads it weighs about 12,500 lbs. My truck pulls it fine, but in Alaska there alot of LARGE hills. I will also be making a trip from Alaska to Florida in about a year and that could be a long trip with a stock truck. I wanted to ask you guys what might be the most economical and safest way to boost my power. I am only looking for mild mods, programmer, intake, and exhaust. I would also like to add an exhaust brake, does anyone have experience with these? I wont be able to purchase for a few months as I am in Iraq right now, but when I get back it's game on.

AFE stage 2 intake

4" exhaust w/or w/o high flow muffler

Guages (EGT, Trans Temp, Boost)

SCT xcal3


Then, because you haul some - water/meth injection to lower EGT's and boost power

Thanks guys, I appreciate any help I can get. Are there differences in the water/meth injection kits i.e. any certain brand to look for?
