With that weight. I would consider moving up to a 2500. You must add all the weight of your passengers to the 8600lbs if you haven`t already.

Set of $100 air bags, electric brake controller, and call it good. 1500 rides nice, better milage, lower to the ground, so on. I ran half tons for years towing big loads. I moved to a 2500 because it had a solid front axle.

Given the frontal area, length and weight I like the extra stability and stouter drivetrain components of the 2500.
