I don't know what type of payload they were rated for, I'm thinking it would be hard to overload one in a typical pick-up.

I know heavier duty four speed's were built as well.
Try a search on Spicer auxiliary transmission.
That's what I thought about the torque.

I did a search last week and have been mulling things over since.

A solution will present itself.
