Body Stretch

I have a stock 1978 CJ7 frame that I am thinking about using as a base for a complete build up. I was thinking, how hard would it be to cut the frame and add some length to it so that when I cut a body and fit it on there the body would be the same length as a Scrambler (so I can use a Scrambler hard/soft top) but have the same rear overhang as a CJ7/Wrangler? Has anyone here done this? Any tips for me? I am just day dreaming right now, but I think if I am going to go to the trouble of building it from the frame up I might as well do some custom one-off stuff at the same time.

Thanks in advance
