Anyone run late model ford steel wheels on the CJ?

Was watching Fast N Loud the other day and saw the Bronco Build episodes. They ended up using 17" f150 wheels on their truck, which came out looking pretty dang good. Was wondering if anyone has run these on their CJ?

OEM rims? I think the ford hubs are smaller than a CJ aren't they? You'd have to machine the centers of the rims to get them to fit.

'84 CJ-7: Yota axles (spartan locked front, e-locked rear) 4" BDS, 1" Daystar & 3/8" shackle lifts, 35" X-Terrains on steelies, YJ Tub & family roll bar, heater blower upgrade, 4.2L w/MC2100 & Team Rush, Warn 8274. Rebuilt 4.2/4.0 hybrid, AX15 and twin sticks/clocking ring waiting to go in.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.
<------------and yes, that is her.
:-D

Those were Dodge wheels, not Ford. Late model Fords use a metric lug pattern, not 5 on 5.5", and it's not close enough to fit on a CJ.

And you still need to check the size of the center hub, Dodges use the smaller diameter hub just like the Fords do.
