Upgrade Routes

I have a completely stock 06 lbz with 101000 miles on it. I've been reading a lot on the forums about upgrades and looking at a lot of stuff but the question is what order of upgrades should I do. Like what I should do first then after that. I plan on this just being a street truck that I'm going to pull with in the street stock class at some local pulls probably once a month. So I was wondering what upgrades you would do first then further on?

Exhaust and efi live.

If you plan in doing any sled pulling at all, i would upgrade the whole front end. Tie rod sleeves, supports and possibly a center link.

I plan on doing exhaust and efi live pretty soon here. I was wondering should I just go 5" first? Thanks for the input. How are the kryptonite center link and tie rods I'll probably do that right after exhaust and efi live just for the added insurance upfront.
