2019 Tailgate weight limit

Hello just purchased a 2019 Dodge Ram Rebel. Love the truck! The aluminum tailgate is super light. Just wondering if anyone knows if that affects the weight you can put in it? I have always loaded my Atv in the back of my previous Ram trucks just not sure how the aluminum would affect weight limits.
Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

My gut feeling would be that it doesn't affect it, but I have no data to back that up. It would seem silly to me to increase payload in the 2019, but make the tailgate such that it supports less weight. But stranger things have happened. That information has to be out there somewhere.

I just unloaded a 2,000 pound hale bale off the back of mine by resting one end on the ground and the other end on the tailgate, I was nervous but no issues at all.
