Rear YJ Bumper fit TJ?

Anyone know if the bolt pattern is different on the rear bumper from a YJ to a TJ? I built a rear bumper with a heavy tire carrier for my YJ that I want to install on my Rubicon and just curious if it's a bolt on or am I going to have to do some fabrication.

yj had 8 holes (4 on each side) tj only has 2...other then thats its the same...if the bumper has bolts permenitly fixed to the bumper..your either gunna have to make 2 holes for the 2 new bolts(which is a *****) or cut off the 2 center bolts on the bumper...then it will line up perfectly

If you're lucky enough to own a 97 like me it's a straight bolt on affair as I have all the holes already. On a newer one there may be drilling involved.

Thanks guys. I'm trying to decide if I should let this bumper go with the YJ when I sell it or put it on the Rubi.
