Streching a cj

I would like to strech the wheel base on my 84 cj7 and was told wagoneer spings in the rear would do the trick. Is this true? And if so, how far would it strech it to?

xj rear springs will give you about 6" off stretch. Look at the BTF axle relocation kit.

Like was already stated XJ springs will give you about 6" but require new shackle mounts as well as switching to a fuel cell mounted inside (or some form of relocated fuel storage). The Wagoneer front springs will give you about 2" of stretch.
