We'll start with the front end:

To make up the difference, a 1/2 inch spacer will be needed to keep the axle in place.

OK!! Don't know if you can notice, but the height difference makes the Humvee look way bigger!!!

Basically how I did mine except I used a dremel which, while messy, was faster.

Guess I should've listed tools needed huh?
I made initial cuts with various types of saws. The major cutting and plastic removal was done with a Dremel.
