Don't think so because of the leaf springs.

They are the same width but you'll need to fab either leaf mounts on the 44s for link mounts on the YJ to make them work. If it were me I'd run long arms and coil overs

depending what year they are off of you might need new rims as well. TJ's model years not problem, JK model years, new rims.

You can make anything fit, it'll just depend on how much fab work you're willing to do...

JK D44s are better built than TJ D44s, from what I've read. I say go for it. It can't take too much fab work to remove the JK suspension mounts and weld on spring perches for your leaves. You will have to get new wheels though, as JKs have a different bolt pattern than YJs/TJs.
