axle swaps

I'm about ready to start my body swap(rust for fiberglass!) and want an axle swap that'll leave me with a "stance" that's a little more agressive than the OEM narrow look of my 81 CJ. I've got the rear covered but not to sure about the front axle. Any suggestions.

I'm not a serious rockcrawler so strength will not be a major make or brake part of the decision making process here.

Re: axle swaps

What are you going to be using in the back. It will be hard for anyone to suggest a front, because you generally want them to match. Same length hub to hub (or at least close) and you don't want to have different bolt patterns. Let us know what you are going to be doing about the back.
