Replace 99 TJ Shocks and Springs with 2014 JKUWW Parts?

I have both but the TJ is newer to me. I'm wondering if I would be able to use the JKUWW shocks and springs on the TJ when I decide to upgrade the suspension on the JK.

Thanks!

It's possible with minimal modification needed to make the parts fit. The good news is that people have reported a smooth ride. The bad news that the rear will typically give you around 3" of lift and the front can be anywhere from -1" to 3" of lift. It just depends on which springs where installed at the factory. This changed depending on what options were selected. I.E. Hard top, Towing, Rubicon, etc all had stiffer springs which would result in a higher lift.

I've been thinking about trying this lately. I have a friend with a JK that he's lifted so his springs are just sitting in his garage.
