I'm looking at buying a shorty bumper form a local fab as one of my options for a front bumper. I asked if the fog lamp cutouts would fit the OEM LED lamps. He said he wasn't sure, as the bumper was a redesigned JK kit, and had four tabs for the JK halogen lamps.

I know the steel VS plastic bumpers have different LEDs, but does anyone know if the JK shares the same mount points for JL fogs?

I don't believe so, the JL has two different variants, A 3 hole mount and 2 hole mount. To be honest, I have not changed the JL fogs, but I have done JK fogs.

Thanks, not looking to change them, looking to install a bumper.

They plastic bumper LEDs are 4 tab, not sure if same as JK. Ask them if this is what they look like.

Digging around, and I've confirmed - the JL and JK share the same bolt pattern for the stock LED plastic bumpers.

Do you have any pictures of the mounting inside the bumper? The Sports have the 3 point fog light mount from the factory, so wondering how your Leds attached.

At the bottom of the bumper there is a mounting hole that used and it lines up with the fog light hole, using the standard rigid mounting brackets. Once you have it apart it is obvious, it does affect the way the plastic sheild mounts but i didnt mod it and you cant see it. Bonus of it is the fog lights tend to point SLIGHTLY toward the road edge as well giving a great spread ill grab some pics in a bit

They are level but not centered because of the bolt and flange on the metal brace of the bumper
