These days I building a lifted 6x6 Scania for one of my friends.I'm still waiting to see the details of how you pull that off. I have an RC4WD hydraulic folding crane that I want to add to one of my trucks, but I think it will need a stretch to make it work. Ideally it would be 8x8.
Nowdays there is plenty of options if you don't go Tamiya, Servonaut is one of the biggest names for electric gizmos for these rigs.I looked into Servonaut but I find it quite intimidating. It is really hard to know what would be needed without having any experience with the brand.

As for front I use the factory suspension mount location since I use TLT based axle (axle is expensive from Getriebedoktor in Germany, the rear is too with operational diff lockers)
Here from the first build when I moved the rear suspension
Tried several setups regarding hight and springs, thus the extra holes in frame..
The Hi-Lift Toyota Tundra has the right lengt srings with holes for the TLT axle mounting, but are a bit hard to come by.
