You make a good point. Newer trucks can generally tow more, due to growth with technology & eficiency.

If you ever have any doubts, having a general inspection at the local mechanic isn't usually to pricey and they could tell you a lot!

Your truck will be fine. Some people make things more difficult than they need to be. I can't speak for how mechanically sound your truck is but assuming everything is in working order, you'll be fine. The only thing I'd bother with is a brake controller. Less than 200 dollars installed and easy to do yourself if it's a newer truck. Basically plug and play. It's not like you have mtn passes with in 300 miles of college station texas.......
