Towing capacity


I'm wondering how I can get 12k lbs of towing capacity from my truck. With the 6.0L V8, it's rated at 10.3k lbs. The frame looks the same as the more powerful engined trucks. Is it just engine power or are the brakes and suspension different also? The transmission for sure is different.

So, whats the weak link on the truck? The transmission?
