I have an 08 Wrangler that was purchased in Dubai and then shipped here. Ive noticed a few differences like the bumpers, it's a sport instead of X, and the speedometer is in km. Is there any mechanical differences between mine and the American model?

Your bumper is one of the bigger "European" versions, most likely. They stick out from the front of the Jeep much more than the U.S. models do. As for the rest, learn metric.

Yes, it looks ridiculous! Bumper is the first thing to go. When u say learn metric, does that mean the nuts and bolts ect? You'll have to excuse me; i'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to fixing cars
