the GVWR of the trailer is only 5500. So even in your math I have another 500left. And I think max tow for me is 6300
is it a 4x4 or 4x2 ? the GCWR is 12500 for a 4x2 and 12400 for a 4x4. but I'd also need to know your GVWR and Payload numbers from your door frame sticker, as those are vehicle specific. Lets pretend those are 7450 and 1504 (like mine), so... 'curb weight' of about 5950, so your GCWR of 12500 - curb weight = 6550, so with a 5500 max trailer, you have about 1000 lbs of payload, which is also about right because of that 5500 lb trailer, at least 550 lbs (10%) is on the hitch, if its well balanced, and 550 lbs hitch subtracted from the 1500 lb payload, leaves about 1000 lbs. 3-4 big guys would put you over the limit.
Please run these same numbers with your actual GVWR and payload ...
