Jeep and Ford rims the same?

Ive heard that ford rims will fit Jeeps and Jeep rims will fit fords. The 5 lug rims at least. I tried puttin my mudders on the old 78' F150 so I could take that up huntin and they were spaced too much to fit. My dads 94' F150 has lugs that are closer together like my Jeeps, and he was tellin me that a guy he works with said they would match. they sure look alike. The reason I ask is because if I get a Ford 9" axle out of a later model pickup, can I use the same rims I have now? My rims are Rock Krawler Series 51 15X8. I dont think this is right but could someone affirm it for me?

I don't know about the truck rims, but my XJ and Mustang have the same bolt pattern. Reason I know is I got bored one day and decided to see if my old 16" Mustang rims (which don't fit over the Mustang's big brakes now) would fit on the Jeep.

The answer is yes, the bolt pattern is the same. However, the Mustang's hub is a bit smaller, so the rim won't fit over the Jeep front hub. However, that does mean that Jeep rims will fit on a Ford nicely.

+1 When i had a 91 Explorer to beat on for awhile as well as an XJ i tried the explorer wheels on the XJ but they wouldnt fit due to the smaller hub size on the ford.

The answer is no...F-150, Dodge Ram 1500 and CJ5/7 all have the same 5x5.5" bolt pattern. The cherokee, wrangler, grand only have 5x4.5". Mustang rims are 5x4.5" but they will not fit on an F-150.
