Default Weight Limit

I am trying to figure out what is the weight limit I can haul in the bed of my truck. I am having a retaining wall put up this weekend by some friends since I cannot do the work due to spinal injuries and surgeries, I am needing to haul rock/sand.... I did 1 scoop of sand ( 3 cubic yards ) at 1750 pounds and it took the rear of the truck down 1/2 way what the unloaded distance of the wheel well to the tire was...
Here is the specs on the door tag for any info needed to calculate...
1500 club cab, short box,4x4,360...

Date of Manufacture 4-97
2903KG ( 6400 lb. )

Front 1747KG ( 3850 lb. )
Rear 1633KG ( 3600 lb. )

3500 front axle Dana 4
Rear chrysler 9.25

Thanks for your help on this info.......
