A 10,000 pound 5th wheel would be lots for the truck, a travel trailer ( if that's what your pulling ) should be less than that.

you can estimate by spinning the driveshaft and counting how many revolutions to get one spin at the tires.

If it's there it will have ratio on it

The spinning tires thing
Mark driveshaft mark tires roll truck ahead while watching driveshaft rotation
Is only way to get fairly accurate idea
Really if your going to tow with it pop cover off inspect gears etc for wear
Find numbers stamped on gears or count teeth
Replace cover gasket or use favourite goo fill with lube
You just serviced diff and know for shure what gears are in it even tag isn't 100% shure thing
