Not a particularly good place to be , remember you'll be very hard on the brakes.
I'm not in favor of trying to drive overloaded, a bad experience years back.
But first up-grade should be tires, and any tires you choose , make sure the stock rims are up to any added pressure the heavier tires require.
You already know that bigger isn't better you'll want stronger tires the same size.
JMHO: Look at tires with a load rating that will, cover the loaded truck's weight with a 15>20% cushion.
No sense having solid suspension on top of squirmy tires.
