Dually or Super single conversion?

Anyone ever seen a jeep ((SUV type)XJ, ZJ, WJ) converted to a dual rear wheel or maybe even a super single rear? Ive seen a vid of a CJ or something converted to duals.

YouTube - Jeep Beach '010 Dually

I understand the added width would be a disadvantage, but if you were to use an axle from a cab and chassis truck that's not as wide as a true dually axle would the larger rear footprints be better in the mud (not many rocks to crawl on here in the coastal south)?

Just curious. http://www.jeepforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

it could possibly help in the mud to have dual wheels but it would be more practical to have wider/taller/deeper treaded wheels. IMHO it wouldn't be really worth it, unless you just want to be totally different. It would be expensive though. You can do anything if you throw enough money at it.

As a rule dual wheels are terrible off pavement.
