Makes me remind those Japanese and Korean cab-forward minitrucks with smaller rear wheels and a higher differential gear. But those were used in order to allow a lower boarding height, not to compensate for mismatching differential ratio in a 4WD version (which I have only seen on SRW and matching differential ratio). AFAIK the only 4WD applications with wheel sizes mismatching between the front and rear axle are agricultural machinery.
