Can your tripod take the weight of your LF camera? Can the ball head? How does it behave in wind, or when the shutter fires - does it bounce around or is it steady? As long as it's sturdy enough and you're comfortable with it, go for it.
When I bought a tripod for 4x5 (which I also use with a Canon SLR & long lenses) I went with a big sturdy Bogen 3021 with 3047 head (3-arm). The downside is lugging that beast around with me.
