Smile E350 dually towing capacity

I have a 1995 E350 dually with a 7.3 , auto tranny with OD, and was told 4.10 rear end. This was an ambulance chassis so Ford doesn't put any weight rating or towing capacity on the door sticker. It now has an 8x12 foot flat bed with D rings and some home made sode boards.
I have a Curt class 5 weld on 2 inch reciever mounted to the over width abulance frame. I want to know where I can find real information that would or should satisfy a DOT inspection if I am ever pulled over and checked.
I have looked around and found old posts on several other forums with many opinions, but still have no concrete evidence of axle ratings or towing capacity
Thanks for any help
Charlie

What tag is on the rear axle? Honestly it should (in theory mind you) be the same as an f350 C&c Dually tho of the same year since it's the same axle and springs afaik (20k)

Haven't looked at the axle and there's about 8 inches of WHITE stuff all around the truck right now. Guess I'll have to check it out when I can.
