Probably stock for your truck but a chalk test will help.

Use that as a starting point for the chalk test.

Take a look at the sticker in the door jamb and see what it says for tire pressure. That's one option.

Another option is the chalk test...I'd use that for maximum traction.

Another option is to go several PSI over what's on the door jamb, for better fuel economy, but at the expense of a slightly harsher ride.

Try all of them (a few days each) and see what you like. Just remember to adjust your pressure when the tires are cold and haven't been sitting in the sun, so there is some consistency in comparison.
