I don't think it matters what kind of car/truck you have. And I don't know the pounds but the pressure should be between 25-45psi.

You don't know how much you need unless it's been completely discharged. You have to measure the pressure in it.
Check your Chiltons/Hanes.

It should be eather on the compressor or on a sticker under the hood. and make sure to suck the system into a vacuum before you charge it.

you also want to make sure that it will hold that vacuum for a period of time so that you know there isn't a big leak in the system. That truck comes with some sealed joints and also has springlocks on it where the o-rings or the seal washers can go bad.
