How can I increase the payload and the towing capacity of my 02 truck? Any one with any ideas?

None safely.... Its all about braking, Gearing, motor size, transmission, Frame strength, Trailer tongue weight and brakes....

Buy an F150.....

Ok. Thanks. I think I may go with a 1" or maybe a ½ inch body lift and a 2" shackle lift and a torsion twist. I'm considering adding two extra leaf springs to strengthen the back. How does that sound? 265/ 70/ 16. Plus 305/ 40/ 22. I already have the 16" and 22" wheals and tyres but need fresh tyres for both. I will incorporate a grease nipples on the leaf spring eye bolts. Hoping to find a way to incorporate grease nipples for the bottom and top arms where the bushings goes and squeak. What am I missing? What have I forgotten?
