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'd rather not put that type of stress on the bearing honestly.

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.

Except for the fact that it's 10" narrower than the rear axle he has in his Cherokee now, right?

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.
