Will an aftermarket JL front bumper for a regular JLUR be compatible with a 4xe? Anything different about the mounting points/frame?

Only the prototype models are out in the wild. None of us regular customers have ours yet, so we cannot respond.

That being said, I have the same questions wrt the rear bumper & rock sliders. I don't expect to see any difference in the bumpers, but there may be some minor differences in slider mounting due to the electric power cable routing.

I have a suspicion that something is different with the rock sliders. I noticed that you cannot add the Mopar Rock Sliders to your build on Jeep.com. You can only add them to a non-4xe build. It's also not available on the build sheets for the 4xe.

I believe the steps work. I was able to get them. Just hope they do fit after seeing this.

I would think anything on top, on the sides and front and back will work. I'd be careful with anything doing with the engine and with any part that touches underneath the vehicle.

The 4xe will has a longer transmission which also means a shorter rear & longer front drive shafts. 4xe specific skidplates will be needed, but am still hoping all body mounting points are the same. Adding the ROAM frame mounted step/sliders will be one of my first mods, so I'm hoping for no changes.

I'm guessing you will be good but that is one of the areas I'd wait for.

Eventually, these aftermarket bumper and rail companies will have adaptors for the 4xE until they can develop specific models. Probably going to have to be patient since pre-launch 4xEs were not easy to come by for aftermarket developers.
