    I dont think it will be to much for the engine, maybe the rear suspension.

    You may need a weight distribution hitch but should be ok otherwise.

    If it sags, get some Timbren's for the rear suspension. They will get rid of the droop.

    The 350 engine should have no problem with the load, but as others have mentioned, you may have to expiriment with different options for the suspension.
