FSJ Dualie ID needed

A truck is going up for auction near me in a few days. I was hoping to upload the picture, but I'm being told that it is an invalid file. The truck looks to be a stake bed Gladiator DRW from the 1960's. But it doesn't just have dualies. It has two rear axles. Besides the picture, the auctioneer described it only as a "4x4 Jeep, as is". I never knew that Jeep built anything like this. The truck looks pretty good, but before I even consider whether or not to bid I'd like to figure out what it is I'm looking at. My knowledge of FSJ's of that vintage is pretty limited. Thanks!

There is a website strictly for the Duallie rigs. I can't find the link right now, but they post on the IFSJA.org board Sounds like one of the custom M715 rigs built to haul a camper.

Just in case anybody was curious, here's what I found at the auction. Once I was able to get up close and personal with the beast, it was a '68 or'69 4x4. It did NOT have duals, but it did have an owner fabricated tandem axle to help support the weight of the dump bed. It also had a Buick 350, auto tranny, factory power steering and a/c, and my drool all over it! I wasn't the winning bidder, but I'm staying in touch with the buyer. We might just work out a deal somewhere down the road.
