Won't fit without modifications. Different bolt pattern, different WMS-WMS width, different mounting locations for the LCAs and UCAs.

Good thing is, WJs have bigger brakes and better steering setup. Can be built to work, but needs a bit of DIY fabbing, welding etc..

I'm in no rush to get it done and I got plenty of time and parts. I want to convert it to 4wd in the future but for now I just want to use it as a dd so I don't put miles on my wjs new engine. My other question is, so I don't have to swap the axles can I just swap the knuckles so I can have the bigger brakes. As for the bolt pattern I'm not to worried about that cause I still have my other old rims
