They may physically "fit" as in go onto the lugs, but they are not the same bolt pattern. They will be off and can cause uneven stress on the lugs.

Our trucks are the only ones that use our bolt patterns. 5x135. Jeep are probably 5x5.5

I had 5x5 Jeep wheels on my truck, then one came off due to faulty adapters. You CAN make them fit, I do not suggest it tho. Some people do, some people don't some have good experiences with them, others such as myself don't. If I would have bought the proper wheels, I wouldn't have had a 1k repair bill, and saved myself 600 bucks. I went the cheap rout, got a set of Jeep wheels off CL for 400 bucks, but lost more money than I saved. Once I got enough money, I went down to 4 wheel parts, and bought wheels that belong on my truck.

EDIT: Jeep also has more than one lug pattern in 5 lug, tho none are 5x135 like our trucks.
