Which rear to use??


Well after the Gremlin sale I decided to build a rat rod outta an old 54 international harvester 1 ton dually model R-120 truck.

Its gonna get dual 22.5 inch semi rims and tires on the rear(yes nuts) but thats what Im after.

Question is this? Should I use the rear from the 54 IH or use a 14 bolt from a 90's dually?

Both ate heavy duty and I know the IH rear has axles n lugs the size of yer wrist, but will it handle the load? Anyone else have any issues with an IH rear? Tnx, HG
I was built with the body of a God! To bad it was buddah.
