I would "think" the balljoints and wheel bearings would live a VERY SHORT life under the weight.............$.02
I'd love to hear more about how this truck is doing. I have a distant cousin that is gifting me an old rusted out '55 IHC R110, and I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Wondering how difficult / expensive it would be for me to add 4x4 and/or do a 4BT swap.Truck is 65 years old... It's a 1955 International r110 pickup. I figured a Dana 44 would be perfectly fine I know two people that have them in f250s with 5.9s crank 450hp the have survived. Problem is I can wait and search for a axle I kind of need one here pretty quick.
