Have you ever weighed your truck?

You should have a sticker in the door jam usually with the tire pressures that state what your maximum payload is. That should give you the general idea minus the weight of all your passengers and cargo in the truck. The scale is the only way to actually know what you have available.

Edit: Its gonna be a lot lower number than you expect or want to see.

My 350 is a 2013 RWD and I calculated a max pin of 3440#.
Canadian is 110% in his question, "have you weighed your truck". For $10 you will know how much weight your truck can handle. Keep in mind all of the pin will be on your rear axle. The GVWR doesn't help you decide if you can handle 31 or 39k #.
Trim level and drive train options will affect your cargo numbers. Don't forget to subtract 100# or so from the available cargo to account for the hitch. (My # includes the hitch)
The CAT Scale is your friend.
