Wj swap using Jk tie rods?

I've read these have the same taper as the stock wj stuff correct? Wj stuff also matches xj stuff.

But from my understanding, the Jk ends were bent different to clear the diff? I e also seen many issues with the. Wj swap, or the tie not clearing the diff? So curious here, maybe the Jk ends could be kept?

Yes I want to keep tres, no heims! Staying UTK I think..I'm only at 3.5" of lift.

The wj tie rods are bent to clear the diff. The only place mine hit are at full lock on the passenger side sway bar mount.
