You've got the highest rated parts on the truck already. #1 bars and K leaves. Those grade bars are what I went to when I replaced by sagging B bars and they help keep the "lift" you gained by cranking longer.
Tow ratings...depends on trans. Owners manual gives you specs. If auto, max trailer weight is almost 6000lbs

With stock keys, maxxed adjuster bolts isn't adding too much stress or accelerated wear on the BJ's or CV's. Of course, the big variable is bar wear anyway, the reason for the adjustment bolt in the first place. By 70k or so, even a non-cranked truck needs balljonts already.
**maxed bars = just driverside maxed. good 'ole Ranger lean. If both sides are maxed out, the passenger side is gonna be like 2" taller than the driver's side. lol.
