I actually think I would get the exhaust or Jake brake first....

I hope your current trip is going well. You can click on my profile to see how one of our trips this year took a little detour. All was good in the end though.
Went over Monarch Pass at 11,300 feet the other day. Did real well bout up and down. Proper technique is definitely required. I can do the install myself including the valve springs so I might tackle a Pac Brake this winter.
