It's neat..I mean I wouldn't do it, but it's neat. I'd like to see it close up to see how well it was done...

Its not a new mod. I saw one at a show about 10 years ago. The front diff was a pass through driving it and a stubby driveshaft to the other diff. So yes it technically would be 6x6.

There was a guy that used to have a business and website taking trucks and turning them into the 6x6 trucks. He did quite a number of them and seemed to do quite a nice job. There are a few videos on youtube of that guy's work.

They definately weren't popular, but they are out there.

There was a Ford ranger around here that had dual axles and had a aluminum Landscape bed on it.

There is a company out of Texas that builds these. I have seen write ups in many different truck customizing magazines. They do Ford/GM/Dodge, the do a lot of custom builds for lifted and lowered trucks. But there main customers are F450/550's & Kodiaks, for dumps or 5th wheels for increased tongue weight. I'll see if I can find their website

Interesting but dumb. Should have just got a 3/4 ton and had more power and more capacity!

I'd imagine he didn't build it to try and be on par with a 3/4 ton, He more then likely just built it to be different.

Seems like a waste, how big of an engine could that truck have? Also the trucks frame is light duty. Just my opinion.

Could have the 360 v8. I'm perty sure they had that one...if not the 360, it was the 318v8.

Either way, I wish the ranger/s10 would have a v8.

Jury says....goofy. Looks silly, but I would like to hear the fab guy explain why it is beneficial or better than a dually.

Dodge did a concept truck like this when they came out with the new body style in '94. It was called T-Rex. 500 HP V10. Not sure what it had for a tranny, hope it was better than the ones they were installing in production models.

I believe it had the option of 6WD or just locking the 2 rears. Bet it would have pushed a mountain of snow.

Would be more useful with a Cummins eh?

Looks like it was done to haul that fifth wheel! Looks like a Dakota, probably a 5.9? Most likely this guy is pretty handy and probably cheaper for this guy to add an axel rather than buy a 50K HD truck to haul his camper! Or just bought it, a cheaper alternative vehicle to haul that camper!
