Default wanting to convert 4x4 to a 6x6

Does anyone have any ideas on how to convert a 4x4 to a 6x6 ie stretching the chassis and mounting a 3rd diff from the existing rear diff and then another drive shaft to the 3rd diff and then the usual suspension components, i remember hearing about a conversion but would like see if there was a article on the net somewhere. thanks

more of a home design using stock diff's i can get from the lhs, looking for something that would work with either nitro or electric, may start off with a plate type chassis like the duratraxx quake or like the hpi nitro mt i would make a new plate from 5051 aluminum or what ever i can get
