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.

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.
