A weight hitch may help enough but your most likely looking to get air bags or the rear will be sagging alot!
Good shocks, airbags and E rated tires will fix the suspension but it will not increase payload.

I have an 04 tundra and 21fb. I wouldn't want to tow anything more thru the Pennsylvania hills. if I head to flat ohio its a breeze. the truck does fine you just need to run the rpms up on the hills. wdh is a must. I towed a couple times without it and I have airbags but it is worth the money. mine has a dry weight of 3500 so I figure reality of 4000 plus my wifes 1000lbs of sh.... I mean necessities. if your in a flatter area you should be fine

I towed a 23lb with a gmc envoy 4.2 I6 with 5,000 towing capacity and a v8 version 5.3 liter with a 6,100 towing capacity.

The I6 did ok for short trips and non-hilly areas but dogged it on the mountains

Then upgraded to the v8 version and did a lot better and drove from PA to Niagara Falls last year. We wanted more capacity for my next trailer so we upgraded to a F150.

I think you should be in good shape.

Pull a 25 ft Wildwood weighing 4885 dry 5400 lbs give or take loaded with an 03 Tundra V8 towing pkg WDH flats are a breeze it's the mountains that it slows down but then again I don't beat on it. After we pay for our daughters wedding in Sept will start looking at Dodge Rams.
