Wrong side drop on the front axle for an XJ even if the width was right.

you could always run spacers, you'd need adapters for the bolt pattern anyways.

I have Waggy D44's in my XJ, and to the outside of my wheels is 80in, my CJ5 is 68in lol. That's a lot narrower lol. There's a D44 set north of me for $120, must be from a Scout or something, fronts pass drop.

And the wrong lug pattern and wrong gear ratio. The ad has been deleted so I don't know what was for sale, but a 78 CJ would have had an AMC20 rear anyway, not a Dana 44.
