The drivetrain or the frame?
It could probably be done, but not without a lot of hassle. I know that 1,200 ft./lb. is the high end torque value of that engine, but have you ever driven a diesel with over 1,000 ft./lb. of torque? I do every day in a Class 8 tractor. The twisting force that thing puts out is amazing. Sometimes it feels as if it's going to throw you out of the seat if you jerk the clutch.
