Thats to much. A truck , trailer, and a loaded bed is just asking for trouble. Individually, yes it can tow the truck or the trailer with bed loaded but not both at once.

I'm not going to tell you what your truck can do. I'm going to tell you what I did with my truck...

From Tuscon to Chicago, I pulled a loaded double axle Uhaul trailer, had to weight at least 3,000lbs, maybe 4,000(I didn't weigh it, but it was fairly loaded). In the bed of the truck, I had my bike(550lbs dry), an engine(about 200lbs), and some other stuff. The truck did it, but I definetaly felt it. And I gave myself plenty of stopping room. It wasn't a whole lot of fun though, and I'm pretty sure the headgaskets were NOT in top condition when I started that trip either. And my truck is a '92 3.0 5spd 3.73 2wd.

You don't have enough brakes, and with a lift and big tires you lose sway resistance.

Towing would be very dangerous.
