Best Suspension for Towing

I'm looking to beef up my suspension for towing. I have a 2009 Tacomo 4x4 TRD. I'm towing a 21' Cape Horn Offshore. I'm estimating the weight to be around 4500 lbs when fully fueled. I know i should get a bigger truck but its not an option right now. Plus I love my Taco I'm been looking at 5100 adjustable or ranchos. Anyone towing with the same amount of weight towing, have any recommendations? Thanks in advance

I already have a Reddy Lift Kit, 2.25 inch kit. Its a spacer kit. But i was thinking about taking it out if i needed to, so i can put adjustable's on.

I just order Timbren for the rear, but i need to replace my shocks too. Just wonder which ones are the best for towing.

Air bags. Firestone seems to be a popular brand for those.

I think the Tacoma is rated for 6000 or 6500 lbs with the towing package. I could be wrong though.
