YJ/TJ differences

Just wondering what the truth is about the YJ/TJ differences. I've heard that they are basically the same except the suspension. The tubs were the same and frames were the same except for the coil spring leaf spring mounting differences. The reason I'm asking is I found a good deal on a set of TJ rock bumpers and Bushwacker rocker panel mud guards. I just want to be sure everything will bolt up. The muds guards especially because the BFGs are being a little rough on the rockers and bushwacker doesnt make them specifically for the YJ.... if I have to pass on the bumpers its not really a big deal

Thanks in advance

The YJ rear wheel opening is a bit longer, but you can cut it to match the new flares.
This is what I did for my E-bay cheap-ass flares.

I believe the bumpers should bolt right up, if anything you may need to drill new mount holes, but thats it.
