The JK bolt pattern is 5x5.. The YJ bolt pattern is 5x4.5.. Two differnt bolt patterns means no work.. My recomendation is sell the rims as a 17in rim unless your running 36's+ are to big for a YJ.. Another route if you so wish to keep the rims is spend 200 bucks or so on wheel adapters

Sorry man. That stinks. If you like the look of the rims then just get the adaptors to run them. Plus that will make your tires stick out of the fenders more. (I like that look)
