Who would have thought that Mercedes with the giant G63 AMG 6 × 6 would kindle such hype. Although vehicles with 6 × 6 drive and corresponding modifications have been around for many years, they only really became socially acceptable with the G63 AMG 6 × 6. Cars have been like that ever since Bureko 6 × 6, the Hennessey Goliath 6 × 6 and the crazy Devel 6 × 6 almost shot out of the ground. Would you like a 6 × 6 conversion for the vehicle? The 6 × 6 conversion of a car is a trend in the tuning area and it has also become extremely interesting for the luxury segment. Customers who like high-quality sports cars or expensive motor boats and yachts are always interested in a 6 × 6 conversion. This conversion variant is discussed in more detail below and it is explained what the conversion is all about.
6 × 6 - what does that mean?
6 × 6 means the conversion of a 4 × 4 (two-axle) to a three-axle. Certain tuning companies like Bruiser conversions, Kahn design or Hennessey performance have adopted the 6 × 6 conversion and since then have created powerful vehicles. Three-axle vehicles are particularly popular in the field of off-road vehicles and, if properly converted, lead to a larger one load area and even more traction. At the same time, the off-roaders converted to 6 × 6 can withstand more payloads. The additional loading weight is made possible by the added drive axle and the extended body. The off-roader is expanded and the loading volume is increased accordingly. The additional axle also improves traction off-road, which benefits off-roaders in particular. The conversion to a 6 × 6 can (but does not have to) with the higher Place of the vehicle, whereby the off-roader has an advantage over other wheeled vehicles even on difficult terrain.
6 × 6 conversion to a luxury vehicle
Not only long limousines, like a stretch limo, can be equipped with luxury. Other expensive vehicles can also become luxury vehicles through a 6 × 6 conversion and a corresponding redesign of the interior. The tuning companies have also recognized this and offer the targeted 6 × 6 conversion to the luxury liner at. The conversion, however, requires professional handling and should only be carried out by specialist workshops. In order to build a 6 × 6 vehicle, an extension of the frame must be welded on / in. Furthermore, a second rear axle from the respective vehicle series should be installed. In this context, we are talking about “flanging”. The third axis must of course be able to be operated. For this purpose, an intermediate gear is installed in the area of the second axis (in front of the cardan input). An additional cardan shaft is also available so that the 6 × 6 vehicle works properly. There are also vehicles in which the additional axle is only for show and is only "pulled along", but in our opinion such a conversion is not really meaningful or serious.
Which conversion measures are necessary?
In order to obtain a 6 × 6 vehicle, an additional frame must be installed and the spring mounts must be installed within the frame. Furthermore, a so-called raising gear is often necessary and must be built into the vehicle. The higher 6 × 6 conversion also requires other tires to be complete. Such a vehicle should finally stand out. For example, huge off-road tires often come on large ones Beadlock wheels for use. Further information on the specific conversion can be found on the website of the tuning providers.
6 × 6 conversion - luxury for the interior
The interior can be designed according to customer requirements just like any other vehicle. No matter whether leather covers, new interior linings, new roof linings or other products, the customer's request can almost always be fulfilled. And the 6 × 6 conversions can also be made with additional LEDroof lights and practical lighting for the loading area. In the rarest case, the cabin of a 6 × 6 vehicle differs from that of a production vehicle. The reason is that pickups are often used for the conversion and therefore only the loading area has to be extended. But there are also exceptions such as the Kahn Design Flying Huntsman 110 WB 6 × 6 Vision who has an extended cabin.
basically identical - 8 × 8, 10 × 10, etc.
And with " “The additional axis does not have to be over yet. You can also convert a car to an 8 × 8 drive, the Oskosh M1074 / 1075 rebuilt as Dhabiyan has shown that even 10 bikes (10 × 10) are not a problem, and in principle one could even expand it. Only at some point the question of the meaning and purpose arises.
