So is the tongue weight factored into the total payload?

Where my payload limit is 1528 you minus weight of passenger, cargo etc. and then once that is subtracted the remainder would be the tongue weight limit?
I even go so far as to compute the weight of gas... although I know it's probably already accounted for.

There is nothing you can do to increase your payload, tires etc. may help it ride better, track better or whatever but won't help you increase payload!

Exactly. I read threads about people putting air bags or an extra leaf spring or something else to help the vehicle be able to handle the weight better. But your Gvwr is what it is no matter what you do your suspension or wheels etc. Load up your trailer and hook up to it. Go to a scale and put all for of your wheels of your vehicle on the scale. If the weight you see exceeds the GVWR of your vehicle then you are over weight.
