It should do just fine in the 5500# class BUt you may need to go to a smaller tire to fit in the class unless the club you pull in allows the 18" tires in slow speed classes. I would suggest an adjustable hitch of pulling location.

me and my buddy are gonna make a adjustable hitch , and once i get tires on ill clock my speeds, i think the slowest speed limit we have around here is 3mph. do you think 1st gear t/a pulled would still be to fast. im gonna leave it at stock rpm.
thanks for the info apperciate it.

We pull 560's in the 8,000 to 12,000# classes in my neck of the woods. The more weight you pile on, the better they pull.
