Difference between TJ and JK front bumper

Hey guys I build custom parts mainly for the TJ. Easiest because I have a TJ and am able to gauge and test fit the parts on my own jeep before I sell them. Recently I've been getting a lot of inquires for JK most recently front bumpers. I'm trying to figure out if there is a big difference between the mounting holes on the TJ and JK front bumpers?

Basically everything. Its not like the YJ/TJ where bumpers are so close they can be shared. The JK is completely different.

Alright thanks for the input. Where are the mounts for the JK? Still top and bottom?

there is a template on here somewhere. I used it when I drew my bumper. Try a thorough search.

I did a quick search and found a tutorial for front bumper removal on this site. The bumpers mount from the front....a vertical mount.

The big plastic front cover comes off, and the tow hooks bolt through the frame at the front and holds the front bumper shell on. I believe they are 18mm nuts and the whole thing comes off. I've built a ton of tj bumpers as well, but only two jk bumpers, and both of them stubbys. A lot more angles and corners to make them look good

I sold my JK front bumper to someone on this forum Big Sarge might want to look him up and see what you need. It turned out pretty good. heres the link with the photo.
