600 hp in a 1979 ford 3/4 ton

well i know the drivetrain in these trucks can take some abuse...but im leary on getting a 600 horse cleveland for in it. The motor was originally in my buddies mud bogger that he never got to use...needless to say he literally blew a 9 inch apart with this motor, centersection and all...im just wondering how good my drivetrain will hold up i have the 4 speed tranny, np205 transfer case and dana 60 rear and dana 44 front, 4:10 gear ratio...

How big of a tire do you plan to run? Are the axles that are in it now stock?

I love it when people do things right
Unfortunetly I dont always do that lol
