This thing actually exists and is available to anyone with enough cash, the hubs bolt onto the standard land rover axles, I've got the build sheet somewhere - will dig it out, I'm sure someone will be able to copy it!

From Sir Ranulph Fiennes's narrative it sounded like it altered between wheels and tracks as needed.
