They are good candidates for our Jeeps. The wms is really close (1.5" wider). However, they are not a bolt in affair as all of the brackets will have to be cut off and new brackets welded on in the proper places. Other than that, this swap (both front and rear) has been covered extensively on the inter webs. Some searching here and on Google will bring you many hours of reading enjoyment.

Not a smart swap, in my opinion, unless you get them real cheap.
