My biggest concern is the 26 gallon fuel tank. That's pretty weaksauce. I'm going to wait to see the revised F150 in 2021.
It'll be the only 1/2 ton truck without a 30+ gallon option or standard feature. Yeah it would be nice to have a 40 gallon fuel tank. That way you can drive ~400 miles if your MPG during the tow is around 10.
GMC usually looks better.
I'm waiting for an extended gas tank option.
It may not increase the ratings. The stock 18" tires have approximately the same load rating as your 20" tires ~ 2,700lbs. While there are far more Load Range E tires available in a similar size to the stock 18" 265/65/18 (upsize to 275/65/18), it is possible that the limitation is the actual axle and not the tires. I don't think we can tell how much "true" extra capacity is left in the rear axle without actually weighing the tow vehicle + trailer. But it is possible to quickly exceed the RAWR if you're loading the bed up as well as having a high tongue weight on the hitch. I'm not even sure you can take the actual tongue weight of the trailer as the actual weight placed onto the rear axle since there is a lever action going on since the bumper pull doesn't sit right over the rear axle like a 5th wheel would. I would surmise the rear axle could be seeing 1.5x the actual tongue weight of the trailer.
Would someone be able to post a picture of their trailering/weight capacity sticker on their driver's side door jamb like in this link: https://www.tfltruck.com/2018/10/2019-chevy-silverado-1500-trail-boss-tow-payload-specs/ I'm interested in the Rear Axle Weight Rating for a 6.2L with the max trailering package.
