Weird Question: 2007-2011 vs. 2016 oil dipstick, any difference between the two???

I am trying to get an aluminum handle to replace the yellow plastic one my 2016, and I am only finding handles for 1997-2011.

Is there much/any difference between them?? I am able to modify either to make them work, but I am wondering which style would be best.

Here are the choices:
1. Drake Off Road JP120007BL - Drake Off Road™ Engine Oil Dipstick Handle for 97-11 Jeep® Wrangler TJ, JK & Unlimited - Quadratec
2. Rugged Ridge 11430.07 - Rugged Ridge Brushed Billet Aluminum Oil Dipstick Handle for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Any ideas???

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

I guess I am wondering about the general shape/look of the older dipsticks and if these handles would be compatible...

Any of you multi-generation Jeeper owners have a picture or an idea??

Is the handle removal-able on the 3.6 ? Never looked that close at mine but that may be why their isn't a part available.

It's removable by way of destroying the plastic handle that is molded onto the metal cable. Lol
