If you want more payload capacity I suggest you get a full sized truck.

Payload capacity isn't solely dependent on the springs, it also depends on what the shocks were designed to dampen, the strength of the bed, the type of tires you have (P vs. LT) etc.

885s raise the front a lot. Be sure to set the 5100s at zero when you install them.

When you say "load capacity" I assume you're not overloading your truck past its maximum GVWR, but rather you want it to drive and ride better when it's loaded to that capacity.

AAL usually gives the truck more stability when loaded to capacity, but with 885s in the front, you'll definitely be "ass-down" when fully loaded in the back with only an add-a-leaf.

Dakar leaf packs are designed to work well with OME springs in the front.

Another alternative is adding air bags you inflate when carrying a load.
