The width would probably be way too wide......If I was going to do something like this, I would get a more modern drivetrain, easier to get parts for.

I saw a 37 Ford cab,hood,radiator shell, fenders, and running boards installed on a 1 ton Chevy dually running gear that had been extended to become a roll back behind an old Freightliner sleeper that had been grafted to the back of the cab. Very neat installation. The 48 cab is at least 2.5" wider than the 37 so it should go onto the Ford frame with some high level fabricating skills. Your PU fenders and larger truck wheels and tires may be a challenge since the 37 cab I referenced was from a big truck thus the fenders were larger and roomier.
