Does the diesel option change what bumpers fit on JL Rubicon? Some vendors say yes ??

Not that I'm aware of. I ordered a front before the diesel was even in production and had no problems.

I'm looking at a set of Rock Hard sliders and Northridge reports they are not compatible with the diesel. I don't think this is correct but it does make you second guess hitting checkout.

No differences for the front bumpers that we can find.

Haven't heard any fitment issues on sliders yet.

Where did we report that?

Possibly because of the fuel/water filter?

Just went out and checked out our diesel JT again.

The Fuel/Water Separator does bolt up under the frame. So it may interfere with some sliders, depending on where they bolt up.

The Rock Slide Engineering sliders will go on with no issues:https://www.northridge4x4.com/part/...00-jt4-rock-slide-engineering-step-slider-kit
I installed the Rock Slide Engineering sliders on my JL and the additional armor. I have slammed and dragged them across rocks and all kinds of things on the trail...the are Rock Solid and love them. Highly recommend them...I also installed the LED lights when I open the door my wife can easily see the step...Well worth it.

Ordered... So, fingers crossed.
Eeesh I ordered some too. Never thought to tell them I had diesel. I doubt Jeep would engineer something that would get in the way of sliders. I have a Rubicon with factory sliders so it has to be possible.

Well, if they don't fit we can figure out what to mod to make them fit.

I've been looking at sliders for awhile and settled on these so they're going on, one way or another.

Even the Mopar "heavy duty rock sliders" are not compatible with the diesel. They are on the build/price tool ($975) but can't be combined with the 3.0 engine.

I am emailed rockhard about this and their response was “not a problem”.
Seems like we are good to go!

Are these the same that came on a Moab edition?
If they are they fit

Looks like them. I would have ordered with them, but couldn't. Ended up with ACE rock rails.

I replaced front, rear bumpers with Rugged Ridge and rock rails with Westin triple tube sliders. No issue.
