Isn't that fairly simple? All the dumpers/RMC trucks running around in the city are 6x4's with drive to their both rear axles. The front rear differential has a shaft running to rear rear?? differential.
If you meant modifying the existing/normal differential to that, than yes that would be tricky.

The drive is taken from the PTO for the third axle.

@ xtreme power i hope you did not mind me clicking these pictures and posting them. i did take your drivers permission though (to click)

really like your collection. the modified vitara is not anywhere to be seen here..i had seen that too on the same route i clicked the 6*6.
that was a pretty neat job too.

i have a Range Rover 3.6 TD V8 (pics attached). would love to join in on your caravan on your expeditions!
i love land rovers. they rule!

Don't blame you for that. The rear seems to have been customised using a Mahindra tub & light arrangement.
