Question to all the pullers.

Okay, I have just picked up a 1988 Chevy Suburban 3500. I may to a diesel conversion, but if not I had the idea to make it a pullin truck. My question is, would a suburban pulling truck be able to pull in the 2wd pulling class? It is 2 wheel drive, and I have a 350 and Allison sitting around that both have less than 10,000 on them since rebuild. They came from a bread truck. Do you think it would be able to pull?

In our area there are not many 2wd classes, let alone gas classes. Most are 2.6 and work stock. Some 2.8 and 3.0. My best advice is to get with your local pulling club and ask questions.
