Anyone Tow with a 55?

Just curious if anyone tows with a FJ55. I am in a dilemma with my tow rig. Wife is getting a wheel chair van and will no longer be daily driving my 2002 Chevy quadrasteer tow rig. Payments on the thing are high to have sitting around until I finish my tube chassis cruiser in the spring.

I would really like to get a tow rig I can trail rid once and a while on lighter trails. Being the cruiser guy I am, I'm thinking that a 55 series might fit the bill. The load would be about 5-6K lbs, tube chassis on flat 18' car-trailer.

Is this even possible, and what things should I consider. I figure that the engine, tranny, x-fer may need to be upgraded to tow that much.
