Default Need help altering a Mac and Jack's Clone

I have tasted this recipe (extract & grains) as well as talking to others who have tried it:

6.6 lbs Muntons light malt extract syrup
0.5 lbs Muntons light dry malt extract
1.0 lb Munich malt
0.5 lbs crystal 80
0.5 lbs carapils (dextrin) malt
9.3 AAU Centennial hops (1 oz @ 9.3% alpha) for 60 min
6.2 AAU Cascade hops (0.75 oz @ 8.3% alpha) for 2 min
4.2 AAU Cascade hops (0.5 oz @ 8.3% alpha) dry hopping
1 tsp Irish moss
White Labs WLP005 (British Ale) or Wyeast 1098 (British Ale) yeast

The flavor comes out pretty close, but the beer doesn't have nearly as much body as the original. I had thought of substituting a pound of wheat malt for the other lme. Either that or adding some maltodextrin. What's the best option?

Thanks,
Brandon
