Default quick question on towing

so I'm upgrading my detailing rig (new trailer, 125 gallon water tank, new pressure washer, and some bits and pieces) Now my questions here is, is the stock hitch for on my 02 FX4 a class III/IV hitch? also, I'm going from towing about 800 lbs to about 1500 lbs, should I change my rear tire pressure? Thanks

Rafal

I was more concerned with the tire pressure... I'm running BFG KM2's 33x12.5. I figured the engine would handle that fine

Tire pressure will be fine.
