"When vehicle is moving do not exceed 150 lbs. (69 kg) load on tailgate", from page 100 of the "Essential Information Guide" contained in my glove compartment.
When vehicle is not moving - Information on how much your pickup truck's tailgate can handle :

I've had some heavy loads of lumber where I placed a 2X4 on the end of the tailgate to "pitch/elevate" the back of the load in my 2001 Dodge 1500. Don't know if there was anything in the owner's manual in 2001.
