4WD Four Wheel Drive Conversions.
Four wheel drive conversion: for the owner who cannot admit that he or she bought the wrong 4WD vehicle in the first place - anon.
Can't find your dream four wheel drive? Never mind, make it! Meccano-kit 4x4's are just waiting for car-improvement.
A Bush Rangie.
Various firms such as Dakar make "buggy" style bodies for four wheel drives, particularly for those whose bodywork has been written off or is beyond repair. This one is a `Bush Ranger' for a Range Rover donor vehicle. (I wonder if the name gets around Land-Rover / BMW's new concern over its trade-marks.)
The typical four wheel drive has a substantial chassis and is a good candidate for being turned into a soft-top even if the manufacturer never sold it that way. Monocoque construction requires a lot more stiffening if the roof is removed.

Sheer Rover by Wood and Pickett
Long before Rover came out with a four door Range Rover and the LWB model, specialist firms such as Wood and Picket were adding doors, stretching the chassis and even raising the roof (above).
A third axle (below) can double a 4WD's load-space and its carrying capacity. To power the third axle is seriously expensive but a lazy-axle is more economical. Just think of it as a very close-coupled trailer.
