Default How much can i haul in the bed of the truck

Hi everyone. I can't find my manual as I bought my truck used. Here is what I have.... 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 crew cab 4x4 with the 5.7 Hemi. Need to know how many pounds can I put in the bed of the truck (6 foot bed) to be within safe hauling specs of the truck. Just carried a load of porcelain tiles which was 1,100 pounds a short distance and now I have to get some hardwood and need to know how much can I really put in the bed of the truck. The distance I am travelling with this load is about 15 km. Thanks for your help
Dyno

You can find out here:

It's around 1,400 lb's give or take about 150 lbs. Keep in mind the payload includes passenger (and driver) weight and anything else "extra" in the truck (like stuff under the seat, etc.)

How much can I haul in the bed of the truck = how much can I FIT in the back of the truck.
