    From this video it makes it seem as the first 6x6 was the Perentie, but was there not a civilian narrow track version first?
    One of the front on shots seem to show a narrow track at the front and wide track at the rear.
    There needs to be a thread on the whole development of these as there are bits I and I imagine others dont know.

    From memory the civilian and Perentie development were simultaneous, although it is possible the civilian one came on to the market before deliveries of the Perentie 6x6 actually started.

    The vid showed a shire council dump truck 6x6 and a Sutherland Shire Bush fire Brigade 6x6. Would these have been civilian narrow track or Perentie wide track. I imagine wide track as the vid was about the Perentie.
    Once the Perentie was developed was production of the narrow track stopped and the wide track sold on the civilian market?

    The wide track was never sold on the civilian market. I can't remember what date range they were sold though. Trying to remember, I think the first one I saw would have been about 1986, and they certainly were not sold after 1990 when the 110 was removed from the Australian market.

    So the vid is about the Perentie but shows white painted presumably civilian ones with a civilian cab. Was this a wide cab version of the civilian cab or a narrow cab one ?
    Are they narrow track 6x6,s or wide track.?
    Who knows?

    Mine is a wide track / cab prototype with Borg Warner rear diffs and drum braked with factory diff locks.
    Front is disc braked.
    How many of these were built?

    The Reynolds Boughton 6x6 conversion were factory approved and sold through Land Rover Fleet Sales in the UK although AFAIK none were supplied in wide track or wide cab. These were successors of the Scottorn 6x6 conversions on Range Rover classic and Stage 1 V8. The through drive middle axle were the SMC the same as the Sandringham 6 although as an after-market conversion I don't believe the Sandringham were sold through Land Rover.

    It is possible that some of the RB 6x6 were sold through JRA.

    You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

    Keith, is yours wide track at the front? I remember looking at a civy 1986 JLA 6x6 in about 2003. Iím pretty sure it was narrow/standard front & wide rear axles.

    The 6x6 that lives here is a narrow front track. It is the one pictured in REMLR as a prototype for the Military.

    Mine is wide, front and back. I bought a couple of spare complete front axles at the auctions in case I bent mine. Being Forward Control , I may be a bit over limit
