Main problem I see with that hydraulic motor is its only going to make like 80 foot pounds of torque.

I will tell you the same thing I told "stillsearching". If you want to make a truck a hybrid with some kind of funky fwd, start with a 4x4 truck, convert the transmission to rwd and attach a motor to your front axle via a drive shaft.

But if you gear swap the front axle to something like a 5.xx gear set then you can get about 400 foot pounds of torque at the wheel up to about 35mph. Which would be pretty lethargic.
