4 Door YJ?

Ive been getting the the evil eye from my wife that my YJ isnt family friendly and more of a toy.. and some how I have too many toys She wants me to get a practical vehicle... I already got rid of my jet skis and my sporty 2 door coup, and feel I need to stand my ground on the jeep.. Besides I have so much time and fun into the YJ and finally running really well...

So I got to thinking... she likes the look of the new 4 door wranglers, more for room for the kids and dogs... hmm.... shouldnt be to hard to make my YJ a 4 door would it?. Ive seen people that have stretched theirs but has anyone put 4 hard doors on it as well? Just a thought and Im about ready for a new project. Thinking If I get a second frame and tub section, cut weld, new drive shaft, and stretch fuel lines, exhaust, and wiring. So am I over simplifying this? any thoughts? anyone do it? What are the main pitfalls of stretching a frame out.

I didnt see any posts where a 4 door YJ was done before but I may have missed it. Ill be sure to make a build thread if I do the build.

Thanks
Ray

Thanks guys, I think I killed the idea for right now, maybe not totally but for now. I would love to attempt the 4 door conversion to my YJ but I dont think I can get it done in a reasonable time frame with my work schedule right now and really hate not to have a running jeep for the fall season. Maybe once winter sets in and I dont plan to be using the jeep much. Also will give me more time to save up and locate a donor jeep.

Precisely my though, get a jk and build that.

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

do you have to have 4 doors? I stretched my YJ to LJ specs. I had a 4 door JK and loved it but had to sell it to get a diesel to haul things with!

here is a pic of my rig
