xt crankset fitment
I have a 2012 fuji sunfire and would like to upgrade the crankset. Will any xt m770, 3x9 fit on my bike? Most say 68-73mm, is this the one i need? If buying off ebay i want to make sure it will work.

Yes, it is compatible.
If the crank doesnt come with the bottom bracket, you'll need to buy it separately, any Shimano Hollowtech 2 for mountain bikes (deore, XT, etc.). The BB will come with spacers to use on a 68mm BB shell.
I see your bike ids a hybrid and comes with trekking chainrings (about 48/38/28T). If you go with a MTB crank with something like 44/32/22T, you'll want to lower the front derailleur.

Edit: clafify all MTB HT2 cranksets inc a BB, road ones don't come with a BB in retail packs

True and a good point. To avoid this, you can get 48/38/28 in XT HTII as well. See here.
