A driveshaft is also something I would reconsider....

Guys have swapped to 3.73's and 4.10's and saw no gains. The 3.55's will do nothing for you but empty your wallet. The 3.15's when combined with the gearing in the 6R80 come out to a 3.55-3.60 gear...

The 2011+ autos have proven time and time again to see zero gains with a gear change. The best option is a 3.31 but unless you're looking to squeeze every last bit out of it it's hardly worth it....

Correct but no one ever suggested that. My car is an auto so I run a M/T drag radial 100% of the time both track and street. One of the many advantages of the autos in these cars.

Manual transmission + drag radials is a recipe for disaster. Count on some broken axles at some point. Autos can get away with drag radials.

The CJ Intake requires shifting in the 7800 rpm range and adding cams to take full affect. Are you willing to do that?

Once you install the converter you'll realize it was the best mod to date, regardless the cost.

And I'd consider adjustable shocks/struts.
