Hach, this is the rear gearbox. You need the modified the existing end one to connect to this. You will also need to extend the frame as well with additional suspension. Might be cheaper to buy another truck to extend the frame and also get the rear gearbox and tires. 

The biggest challenge is still to modify a middle gearbox for the 6x6.

The picture you have is a 1/10 version of the HC4 which is what the 1/16 is copied from.

Actually now that I think about it, all you need is two of these trucks and you have all the pieces you need to make a 6x6.

Interestingly enough, I do have two of these coming. Might take a crack at it as long as Heng Long?WPL is not in the process of making one.

Mike. just get some metal to extend the chassis, turn rear metal spring leaf up side down then install 2 rear axle at the end. Only thing to do is build a housing to hold spring leaf and so it can move up and down. Don't need 2nd axle to connect to main gear box. Just make it as dummy axle.
That's only way to make cheap modify.
And have to build a new cargo box, but it's easy.

Well you did say 6x6 not 4x6.

Mine will be 6x6. I have some ideas and I think it will work. Just need two of these to make one that's all.

With the sound module from Banggood/eBay. Slightly cheaper than Clark's new board even with the ESC.
