Relative to the modification of a monocoque for the same purpose. There's a reason why there were so many Carmicheal etc conversions of the original RR but you'll be hard pressed to find the same done to a modern RR, a few limo conversions aside.

That would be a 6x4, a 6x6 would have 6 driven wheels.

Well yes that's true!?

Nearly all the Carmicheal RRs were 6x4 and most deafner conversions are 6x4. There's a Swansea?? Airport FD deafner with 6x6 and some of the TACR2s were 6x6 I think. However for simplicity's sake most firms/people would use a normal defender rear axle for the third axle and hence shouldn't adding drive to the rearmost axle be a fairly simply operation?

Thinking about it though, that's complete rubbish! How do they get power from the middle diff to the rear...that's really not something I would know how to do at all!

The Jersey F.D. TACR pickup trucks were 6x4 I think?

Real 6X6. Spotted on tour in Iceland. I was (as a Defender driver) a little unmanned in it's presence. Scornfully I muttered: Where would you go with that lump?

Well, said donegaldan, anywhere you wanted to, I suppose....

At least when you drive a Defener others wave at you.
