Well, the maximum tongue weight is 1045 pounds, however the rest of your question requires more information from you.

I need your tire size (LT or P metric), gear ratio, and whether it's an ST, SLT or TRX.

The owner's manual is useless....

The only reliable source I've found (since there are far too many variables) is the Bodybuilder site.
