Do you want to run the same strut and control arm design or go to a double wish bone setup? You can easily increase the control arms with some thick bar steel and a mig welder. If I were to increase wheel base I would be looking at 4 to 6 inches each side. I would also do a 8" lift and use double wish bone with a extra t-case blah blah blah...
I was also looking at using two bigger 4WD IFS front ends front and rear on a subie, but if you want to keep it custom or Subaru, then that won't work. But it would give you 4WS if you wanted
You could do it rather cheap if you know how to weld and know what whats and what doesn't when it comes to suspension..
As for power, if you use a extra t-case it won't bother you much, as crawling is normally slow. But I bet you'd want to go to a EJ sooner then later. Pretty easy really. Check out Rooinater's build up of his " lil' roo ".
Good luck, and take millions of photos!
