I did this on mine. I doubt you can do 6" easy though. I went back about 3" on mine by just re-drilling holes in the floor brackets. 3" made a world of difference. BTW, I have an LJ.
Moving 3" is okay for the seat belts on the sides, but you will also need to move the center mounted belt rearward or they will be way too short. I just used a 1/4" X 2" plate and drilled 2 holes in it 3" apart and bolted the one hole to the stock location and the belts to the second hole. Just watch when you drill through the floor so you don't drill into something you don't want a hole in!
To go 6" you'd need to probably move the rear seat belt locations on the sides. I have a friend who did a 3rd row seat on his 4dr JK and what he did was to install a roll bar extension where the new bar comes closer to the rear of the hard top. Sort of squared off the cage in the rear. Also, if you go all the way back you will want some sort of head rest to keep the kids heads from banging the glass and getting it all greasy.
