This is from my 07 brochure book from the dealer.
3500 DRW Crew Cab (2WD/4x4) Max. Trailer weight (LBS) 12,000/12,000 and Required axle ratio 3.73 GCRR (LBS) 23,500 So the 2WD and 4WD are the same. My pay load is on my driver door and for my truck its 2251 lbs. Yours will be more. I'm sure some one with an 05 wil help you out. I have never looked in here for your answer have you?

Unless you meant to ask pin weight capacity.

Pin weight will be the limiting factor

Assuming he's talking about a 5th wheel or a goose neck. He might be asking about a plain trailer.

on a dually the pin weight on a 5er isn't a problem, my 03 the GCVWR is 22,000#, and the GVWR is 11,400#, so that is the minumin your 05 will be, and if the 05 has a higher GCVWR then you will be up against the GVWR of the truck, My truck and trailer weigh in at 23,500# and the truck is 11,000# with the trailer hooked up, 4400# on the front and 6600# on the drives, my 5er GVWR is 16,400#, so that should give you an idea.
