Default Dingo to jeep conversion?

I have the Dingo kit version but I want to convert it into the new Axial Jeep!
My question is:

what needs to be changed to convert the short wheelbase Dingo into the long wheelbase Jeep?

Other than the obvious body, cage, bumpers & fenders! What chassis parts will I need to buy? I've noticed there is plastic lower links in the kit which are longer but what about upper 'Y' links? And the driveshafts would need to be longer! Is there enough movement in the dingo shafts? Or will they need upgrading?

It may seem quite obvious looking at the two side by side but I don't know anyone with a Jeep or Honcho!

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

yes the links on the dingo are shorter, you will need to lengthen the lower and upper links to stretch the wheel base out.
this is a kit / upgrade option

you will also need the longer driveshafts.
