I know you meant Esarco, but I can't help but say "look at that Escargo!" ;-)

Don't shoot the messenger, lol:

Holy 90wt Brian! it sure does!

The Esarco eight wheel drive (8WD) was developed in the early 1980's by Major Michael Somerton-Rayner. The first Esarco was based on standard Land Rover 110 engine, transmission and axles. The front and rear axles steer - in opposite direction - which made for a tight turning circle, a concept seen on the AEC Road Train as far back as the 1930's.
Two full-time four wheel drive Land Rover transfer cases were used, mounted back to back with the first driving the second through their power take-offs by a dog-clutch and a short drive shaft. The first transfer case drove axles one and three and the second transfer case drove axles two and four. The axle differentials being offset, the prop-shafts could pass neatly over the intervening axles on their way to the appropriate differentials. All in all there were six differentials - four in the axles and two in the transfer cases.
Early Esarco’s used the Land Rover 3.5L V8 engine. On the road, the second transfer case was disconnected and the vehicle became an 8×4. Offroad, the second transfer case was connected to the first, making an 8×8. The Land Rover transfer cases contained a "centre diff'" for full-time four wheel drive and were equipped with diff' locks.
Land Rover coil-spring suspension was also adopted from the Land Rover 110. A ladder-frame chassis and a simple forward-control cab structure completed the picture.
At some stage the concept was taken up by Stewart and Stevenson of the USA, becoming the Esarco SS300. Part-time 4WD transfer cases were adopted and pictures show free wheel hubs fitted to axles 1 and 4. Engine options became a 7.3L V8 diesel engine or a 6-cyl petrol engine.
Although intended as a "utility" 8×8, at least one Esarco was prepared for racing! In 1991 Jacob Westerfeld and Michael Amiralay prepared an Esarco for the Paris to Capetown Rally, also aiming for the Paris-Dakar Rally.
Back in the UK, the Esarco concept was bought by the MWG Group which refined the design but was put into administration. The 8×8 was purchased by the ex MD of MWG, Mike Hearn and a new company, H.U.G.O. (heavy use-global operation) All Terrain Vehicles Ltd. which built final prototypes and type approved the 8×8 c1991. MWG established early on that the possible users would want to carry a crew. Army gun towing, re-supply, emergency aid relief etc. - all of these usually need to carry a useful load off road and also carry the operatives. As a result MWG made the 8×8 as a diesel-engine vehicle for better fuel duration and fitted a Perkins four cylinder Phaser 110. Also fitted is an automatic Chrysler A727 gearbox and a Land Rover LT250 transfer box driving four specially made wider and stronger axles.
The body was made as a rigid frame structure and all suspension was coil with double acting shock absorbers. The cabin was constructed on a rigid square steel frame providing roll over protection. It is a four-door four-seat cab. There is room between the rear seats for a fold-down bench seat for two more or for an access door to the load deck.

They made these with the International 7.3 ? One of these with a 7.3 powerstroke would be the shizz.

Truth! Hard to believe the early units even moved with the 3.5 ;-)

Working on them is kind of cumbersome.. Especially redoing all the brakes, what is funny is that the brakes are only on the front three axles. Disk up front and drums in the second two rows. The one we have at the shop is a 3.5 and is pretty simple set up all the way around, with surprising amount of spunk. The truck is actually shorter then a 130 and isn't much wider.

Damn - I didn't read that far down. I was thinking this thing is cool as hell and that was with the 3.5. A 7.3 would be insane.

I know the 8x8 is a major part of this truck but I keep thinking loosing the middle 2 axles and get some 37's with the IH engine would the treats. The crew-cab-over and the bed would have a lot of function and the wheels at the ends should do well off road.
