Which rear to use??

Hello.

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

The IH rear end is probably a Dana 60 or 70. Parts are available for this rear end. The GM 10.5 14 bolt rear end might be a little stronger. Either one should work fine.
