There was a picture going around similar to this... Wasn't very well liked here but its your Jeep do with it as you wish. a 6x6 is not going anywhere a 4x4 couldn't.

Cool. Good luck. You will probably need quite a bit of funds and fabrication skills. If you can't do most of the work on your own the price will go up quite a bit more. You seem like you have an idea started.

Just a question out of curiosity... what made you want a 6x6 Jeep? Just for looks or is there a purpose? I'm not bashing or saying it is stupid I just was curious.

I think this might be one of those, "just because you can, should you". Off road it would be PITA on many trails.

Unless its a dually. The issue with getting power to one rear axle to the next. If it was me i would buy a deuce and a half call it good as is.

There is a guy here in town that has two of these. He does use them off road with the local clubs. mostly to drag out abandoned cars/trucks for clean up days.

A few good 6x6 threads/builds on POR. I don't think any of them were jeeps though. Discussion of the tech is relevant though.

How are you going to make it 6wd? I'd be more concerned about that rather than design.
