Default Beefing up the tow rig...

Okay, I know everybody on here is going to say sell it and get a deisel or something of that nature, but I have found myself in a financial place were I am stuck with a 1996 Chevy Tahoe LT as my daily driver and tow rig. It has a Vortec 5.7l in her with a class III hitch and (I believe) 3.54:1 gears...

I don't want to dump a ton of money into this truck as some day I would love to own a real tow rig again. However, what do you guys recommend to make this more tow friendly? I know that it needs overloads of some sort (any recommendations?) and a trailer brake controller (Again needing recommendations). I will also be doing some mild bolt ons to increase power. Any help will be apprieciated.
