It looks like an up-armored Tucker Sno-Cat.

Was that awesome white outwest cali I think?
So we need to start building 4 wheel drive buses to make money?

Buy them for $2500, put $10,000 into the drive train, and make a $7500 profit.

Even with all new parts, I could do it for under $15,000

If you guys are serious about this, head over to Pirate 4x4 and start reading. There are tons of after market stuff to just bolt on.

I would use a rear diff out of a front engine, run the drive shaft up over, passed the diff, to all the space under the belly. That's where the tranfercase would be. From there you would run a shaft to the front, and one into the now forward facing rear diff.

One more mod that would be fun, would be a front and a rear engine bus with tandem rear diffs. Front engine would run the forward rear diff, and the rear engine would run the back rear diff. The power of two 8.3 Cummins for up the hill (2000 foot pounds of torque) and breaks on three axles to slow down when going back down the hill.

There are also places that make lockout hubs for big stuff. That way when one engine is shut down on the flats, that diff would be free wheeling.
