Re: lengthening W/B on CJ-5
Maybe he plans on hooking a tow strap on the front and rear. He then ties one strap to a tree and the other to another Jeep. Then he takes a torch and heats the frame so its cherry red and pulls on it. All he's paying for is tow straps (which every good Jeeper should have) and gas.
But back to real life. Unless you've got mad fabrication skills, and even then, stretching it won't be free. You'll need longer brake lines, fuel lines, maybe wiring, materials, labor if you need to pay friends in beer, and then what happens when you screw something up? Its not gonna be anywhere near free.
