maybe a set of front dana 44s and a front to back link. looks cool for trail use, but i can see some major liability for highway use.
needless to say, i have needed one out on trails more than once.

I bet it feels like the teacup ride at Disneyland. Looks cool, but I hate the mud flaps.

Saw something like this on a massively lifted 4 door jk running 54's on this off road obstical course competition on TV, was really cool, and that was what made them win that course, well that and the massive tires...haha

I also have seen a chevy or GMC truck that came standard with 4 wheel steering.Not many of them were made. But the rear wheels only turned a few degree's. Im going to see if i can find it... again

You can tell the ones with rear steer because the bedsides are flared a bit more than a normal truck. The steering would either turn the opposite direction of the front wheels when going slow to allow a tighter turning radius, or at highway speeds would turn the same direction so you would "crab walk" sideways when changing lanes.

That was at the 2006 Top Truck Competition. And that 4 door Jeep was Brent Burton's TJ, the axles are 2.5 ton rockwells and the tires he had on then were Michelin truck tires, he is running 49 inch IROCs on it now.

They use full hydro steering on the rears, and a couple have used an electric steer but they don't seem to work as well.
Check my album I've got a photo of Bill's 4 Runner with a tire on top of one of Brent's 54 inch Michelins

Yes most guys use a joy stick, or 3 way toggle to run the rear steer. Most of them use full hydraulic steering rams for the front and rear when they are doing the rear steer set up.

Same principle, that is probably where they picked up the idea. It is amazing to watch a guy that knows how to use rear steer crawl through the rocks.
Cory Shell, the guy that spotted for Brent at TTC, has a flat fender jeep with front and rear Dana 60s set up for rear steer. It is one of the best rock crawlers I've ever watched. ( that isn't a buggy )
