Nope. Different coil spring sizes, different axle shaft lengths, etc. It would be a big job to put ZJ axles under a WJ.

Youll have to be more specific. Front or rear? D30, D35, D44a? Are you planning on swapping the whole axle assembly, or just the carrier/ring and pinion? Its not going to be as easy as youre hoping.
