It probably was a 3/4 ton truck with the snow plow package, or else it was a Corp of Engineers truck. I've seen them in both types of trucks, one was a crew cab, stepside bed, with a 318 4spd/ divorced 205. No worries about broken parts there, not enough power to cause troubles.

It almost looks like the front is a dually though, with the studs spaced out away from the drums.

A closed knuckle 70 is "ok" as long as you like the drum brakes, and I understand the caridian(?sp) is not maybe as strong as a ujoint. All in all I don't believe a 70 front is much stronger, if any, then a 60 front with 35 spline shafts.
