    I am looking for some extra room but just dont really wanna part with my jeep for an unlimited?
    Beside moving the axel back and relocating the shocks how much would you really have to do
    Cut rear end off.
    move fuel tank and lenghten frame
    add steel.
    weld and that should be it right?

    You could always contact American Expedition Vehicles (AEV)

    http://www.aev-conversions.com/products/brute/

    They have kits that include parts to cut and lengthen your frame. They have the complete Brute kit ($$$$) but sell the individual components as well. Try calling them and just ask your questions to get help.

    How much are you trying to gain? You're not going to get much on the rear without moving the gas tank and extending the frame. The front you should be able to move close to 3" without to much trouble. Anything more than that and you get start getting into steering box issues.
    Genright also sells different kits for stretches.
    There's also a number of stretch write ups over on pirate4x4.
