Default Double telescoping drive shafts?

Working on a 6x6, current suspension set up lets me get some insane flex, but limited by the short driveshaft between the 2 rear axles. So i got to thinking, has a double telescoping driveshaft been done? I know itd only be like 50% more extension, but that's what id need. Other option is going to just be to put limiting straps

Why don't you forget the passthrough axle and make the driveshaft go over the middle axle.


I did that on my Unimog and use 2 full driveshafts:



I know It's not possible to do exactly like this but I've seen done earlier on TRX-4s, for instance

Its a good idea, but i personally dont like it. Im gonna most likely just get some limiting straps. Ill be able to get good flex, just not the insane flex

I did this because it was more correct for the truck I was replicating and was after I had the pass-through middle axle. That diff wasn't handling all that stress
