Here you go. This is probably one of the more famous 4 wheel drive larks built.

My brother almost bought a 60's Studebaker wagon that had a rear window that rolls up into the roof--it was at a former Studebaker dealership in his town that took it in trade decades ago and it never sold,it was stashed in the basement of the huge building,along with many other cars..

The original owner of the business was close to,if not 100 years old,my brother bought many NOS parts from him before he passed away a few years ago--you'd never know the guy was that old after meeting him..sharp as a tack right till the end,knew just about everything he still had "in stock" as far as parts !..
Sadly the building was cleaned out and sold not long after he passed and much of the cool stuff was scrapped..:(

Did they use a ford bed?
Yes it is an early 2000s Ford superduty bed. International built these from the factory. Stupid looking for a factory built truck. They had a subframe under the bed also so it was an electric over hydraulic dump setup. It was 4x4 though.

This one came out a few years later and was way more better but only had a VT365(6.0L Powerstroke). I think they only lasted a few years also. I really want one. They had 40" Procomp extreme mt tires on 20" wheels and 4x4.

Yeah when these came out I was drooling, I wanted one but no way I could afford one.
I still might someday build my own on this:
