There was a post with the same question a couple months ago. The JK frame is wider and would take some mods. Someone posted a picture and it did not look right. Do a search for it.

If your looking for a more of a modern look, there are bumpers out there that look similar to the JK's bumper but they are designed for the TJ series you just have to look for them. Try sites like 4wheel drive and Parts, Quadratec and JCWhitney they might have something that will work for you.

if you've got a welder, oxy-acet torch and an angle grinder, you can make anything fit.

otherwise, nope.

If you wheel your jeep at all, you're going to ruin a JK bumper. Far to much plastic. They don't hold up to well.

Yep that is the picture I had seen before. IMHO, the bumper is rather big and bulky on the TJ. Also not that the TJ there has 6-7" flares,. Without those, the bumper is gong to stick out beyond the flare and look worse.

I think that'd look good. I love the headlights in the bumper. I was thinking about buying a Warn Rock Crawler and cutting out 2 holes and mounting 2 lights, but what you just posted looks really good. How much is the kit to shrink it down?

X2 - just get a short bumper and cut some holes in it to mount lights. The JK bumper hangs way too low compared to the TJ's.
