Seems to be something different compared to the CCKWs - I might be wrong, though.

The standard 6x6 for US Navy & USMC was the International M-5H-6. This appears to be a line of them. The IH in the foreground clearly shows the side mounted spare tire on the wooden sided bed.

I would say same. Like the GMC & Studebaker 6x6 the IH came in LWB and SWB models w&w/o winch. LWB had the side mounted fuel tank & spare tire while the SWB had the fuel tank & spare tire behind the cab like the GMC. The IH was MUCH better truck off road! Larger tires (as pictured here), locking differentials and more powerful engine made this one tough truck! It was the standard 6x6 of the Navy & USMC. Only about 30,000 of these IH models produced compared to the approximate 600,000 GMCs.

That's a GMC CCKW (353 or 352 depending on wheelbase) without any doubt. The interesting thing is that is one of the type converted to single, bigger, wider wheels all around, exactly the same type of wheel we can see in a DUKW. Seems the USN was specially keen in converting the GMCs it had to this version. The Army used mainly this type of wheel in their "Bolster" bridging trucks:

Looks like a CCKW to me, too. When seen from the front, the CCKWs have that "bar" that looks like their fenders are connected through the grill, as above. Internationals don't have it. When you can't see the shape of the fenders or get a really good look at the hood, it does seem to be a spotting feature. Could be wrong, though...
