I was in the same boat you are in, stock truck and looking for cheap effective mods. Ended up with the following;
Diamond eye 4 inch turbo back exhaust (230 straight pipe or ~260 with muffler)
6637 intake (filter for ~50 or kit for 90 from riffraff)
Gauges (went with glowshift for 200 which most won't recommend, but I haven't had any issues YET) most recommend isspro or autometer which are ~400.
Php Phoenix chip for 300. Best value ts 6 position chip with tunes from reputable tuner. Others will run upwards of 400. Or go with hydra for 425.
So for under a grand you will have a totally different truck. Mine is night and day difference from stock with just the basic mods. Next will be better transmission cooler (probably tru cool from dieselsite.com) and a different valve body. (Transgo tugger kit??)
