    Now that the jl is out, has anyone gotten to see which parts are interchangeable with the jk?

    I like the new rock sliders and stubby bumper. So far haha.

    What do you like about the JL?

    Offhand possibly the LED headlamps, backup camera, wheels and with some modification the tail lights, axles, seats, bumpers, rock sliders

    I hope the bumpers are I like the one that can be converted to a stubby. And the rock sliders offer more protection.

    Gents, agreed. Great looking bumpers - I particularly like the integrated front lights and fenders of the JL. Would anyone know if the fenders are compatible with the JK?

    Welcome @nik1971 an easier approach may be to install similar style LED lights to your jeep front fenders. The JLs front clip has changed enough that most if not all body parts won't be interchangeable. IMO the JK 10A or some aftermarket stubbies look better on a JK.

    I like your back up camera idea. I have busted out 2 tail lights backing into walking trees.

    LOL good thing it was only the tail lights.
    One nice feature found on the JL is the backup camera mounted onto the spare tire mount. Probably too spendy to retrofit onto a JK as many universal backup cameras are on Amazon website.
