Thats why I'm now thinking about doing some thing similar tho the BTC stretch. Basically moving the shackles back and using XJ springs. that would only be 6-7" out back. that levees 3.5 inches of tub behind a new wheel well opening.
It would still look like any normal 5 to most people.
have longer wheel base.
keep the compact dimensions of the 5 for tight trail work
be cheaper than swapping to a 7
I want to ditch the NT axles, and I figure that would be the time to change out suspension. the stretch would allow for a more stable move to SOA.
