 Here is mine.  A chevy dually 4x4

It has a 2-speed full-floating rear axle from a big-rig, nitrous, a twin-turbo, intercooled Ross Gibson 502 big-block chevy.

You did say whether you wanted real or model, but here's my 1:1 scale 1990 F350 4X4 dually.

Well since i'm a 4X4 nut heres a few of mine the first is a Jeep CJ7 Trail rig and mild rock crawler it has a quarter eliptic rear suspension and the standard front springs also a Corvette engine

The second is my hard core trail rig and rock crawler something you might see in Four Wheeler magazines Top Truck Challenge it started out as a Jeep CJ7 but i only used the grill cowl and hood from the kit the rest is all scratch built it use a cantilever four link set up with King coilovers and Rockwell axels the tires are from one of the Jada diecast Hummers with wheels made by me

Third up is yet another Jeep this one started life as the Daisy Duke Jeep CJ5 i used the axles and engine from the Mongram CJ7 kit the paint is HOK Orange Pearl

Hope yall like em any and all comments or questions welcomed thanks for letting me share

       Willie

The next is a fully scratch built rock buggy i even made the Rockwell axles that would have a custom housing the tire of course are the 49 inch iroks from So-Real engine is from an older Monogram Nascar Ford

Next up is Yet one more Jeep again a CJ7 this one is built as a show Jeep the paint is a custom mix the engine is a big block Chevy all plumbed up interior is flocked tires are the Ground Hawgs from one of the Monogram High Roller kits

Here is my S-10 Top Truck Challenge ride it use Unimog axles and tires and wheels a small block for power has had the bedsides dovetailed i muddied this one up a little to give that used and slighty abused look

And finally my Bronco this was a fun one is uses resin Dana 60 centers with the rest of the axle being homeade it uses the standard four link suspension and Sway-away coilover shocks its been dented and now has a layer of mud on it i put the suspesion in a "posed" position on a RTI ramp it also use the So-Real Iroks  the rest is all homemade too

Here is one i have still under construction its the Mongram Madd Mudder Chevy Blazer made my own leaf springs for it it too uses the So-Real Iroks but this will have RPP Hobby aluminum wheels and beadlocks the engine is a big block

 Alright steve the first thing you need is a photobucket account.  It is easy to set up and free.  It is also easy to upload photos.  Once you have all your photos uploaded use the IMG code and paste it into your post.  Good Luck, Stewart

P.S. Remeber only 3 pics per post. Smile

Only three because its a rule.  They will eventually edit 5 of the 8 images out leaving three.  something about it being hard for some computers to load that many pics in one post.  Doesn't seem like a problem for most though.

heres a few more

this is the same pickup. i scratch built a "farm/ranch" hevy flatbed for it. i stretched the frame and made it a crew cab. lengthend the bed and used step side fenders for the dually bed. the body didnt turn out as well as planned, but did this build years and years ago. I even made a farm fuel tank with pump and nozzle in the bed, and a gooseneck trailer hitch.

Man, you guys are posting a lot of great 4x4s here. I hope to see more posted up. They are really inspiring and are making me want to put musclecar builds aside for a while and dig another truck out and start going to town on it. 

 Hey Willie, I do have to tell ya that I really dig your flexed out Bronco and the TTC S-10.

actaully what i did was used a set of "solid" drag race slicks and used a sharp knive to cut the grooves in them, you can squeeze the tire which helps the knife cutt it better and allow you cut as deep as you want. another way i have done it for derby tires and even custom cut off-road tires is used my dremel with a cut-off wheel and notched the tread out that way.
