See p. 331 of owner's manual.

The spec is there. I think I remember what it says (150), but I am not sure and do not want to say the wrong thing, so just go there and you will see yourself for sure. Thanks

As they say, as an absolute last resort, read the instructions.

you da man...
thank you

i looked thru the owners manual when i purchased the truck...
wasn't looking for that info at the time..
and i was sitting here eating cheetos, naked and didn't want to go outside and get the manual out of the truck...
one of the nieghbors would wonder why my hands had an orange "cheeto" color to them...
as far as the naked part,they would just wonder whats he doing this time
