Sülzer developed a 4x4 version of the VW LT based on the long wheel base. These were either LT40, LT45 or LT47. Opposed to the normal LT40 & LT45, the 4x4's only had single wheels on the rear axle. The chassis was lifted and a propshaft driven, rod/shaft controlled transferbox was installed under the vehicle. The front and rear axles were replaced.

The transferbox was a New Process 208. The first 6 of the Sülzer vehicles are supposed to have had Dana axles. After that production was changed to use the Italian build Clark-Hurth axles. Differential-Lock on the rear axle came as factory default. The front diff-lock came optional.

In total 156 LT 4x4's were build by Sülzer
