It's hard to tell how large the weight is in the pictures. It should be alright as long as you can attach it so it's not in the way and is firmly attached so it can't move around and damage something.

This rear end has bearings and not just bushings? It should handle it fine if it has bearings.

Weight is always better on the wheels IMHO, but that GT looks stout enough to handle it.
