The 33 lbs is for the original tire way back when. The E3 wasn't around then. 41 is the recommended pressure for most newer tires.

38f and 41r running 33 causes poor handling

The 41psi is the MAX air pressure for carrying the MAX load of weight the tire can handle. On the 1500's there is a chart on the left side of the frame for tire pressures. Might look on the frame.
