How much weight on a 350 flatbed?

Yeah...I understand that its a 1 ton truck... but what happens if you load 2 tons in the form of a Jeep CJ7 on the flat bed?

Thanks,
Cale

Its got a 10'3" flatbed on it. I've already got the jeep sitting on it, but i'm concerned about driving it with it on there.
