Do not see the door sticker, but it tells you the tow capacity of your specific truck as it was built.

Important number is max cargo capacity ( on Drivers door sticker) . Subtract from that passenger weight, 100 lbs for hitch, and weight of any cargo in TV. The number you have left is the max tongue weight. So max loaded trailer weight is approximately that number divided by 0.20.

You can get you payload ratings off your yellow sticker on your door post and put in the first blank and estimate the rest of the numbers and you will have the max weight you can tow. I guess I should add - and say within your trucks manufacture specs.

Towing Calculator based on Truck's Payload/CCC - Towing Planner
