Is the JLU wider than the JKU?

Question

But would that stop it from going through the squeeze?

The newer FJ cruisers make it through there. It is a very tight fit but it can be done.

After a quick Google session:
JL = 74" wide
FJ Cruiser = 75" wide

It should make it but it is going to be tight.

I've seen some wide JKs make it through with little problem, is the JL that much wider?

I have a rather fun youtube video of us guiding a JKU on 40's with D60 front and D70 rear through the Squeeze. If he made it through I don't see how a JLU wouldn't fit.
