I'd expect that the loaded pin weight will be north of 3000 lbs which may be beyond the RAWR of the truck. A trip to the scales to weight the truck with full fuel, passengers and gear will tell how much capacity you have for that pin weight.

X-2 Dave, It's gets back to my old SAFETY ISSUE AND WHITE KNUCKLE RIDE.

Always best to do your own research and math. Its always very enlightening.
