TJ you will need to modify because they dont have leaf springs. XJ i believe you can with very little modification.

Finding a XJ 44 is harder.. but unlike the tj where you to cut of most of the mounts the XJ 44 should just need new spring pads if they don't line up already and maybe shock mounts. OR swap in a ford 8.8. As for the SOA.. in general, weld on new mounts, add traction bar to rear and correct steering for the front.. that's the very simple version of it..

If you can get to fairfield CA. there's a 44 in a MJ at the pick & pull. no difference in width with MJ,XJ ,YJ. Emergency brake cables swap in. do have to move perches. did this swap 2 years ago, soa, more work than you think. but worth it. 8.8 is a good swap, with good after market support. 8.8 is about 1.5 inches smaller than 35/44
