list of parts shared with grand cherokee

so i've discovered through my travels that there are a few parts that the new 11+ compass shares with the new 11+ grand cherokee. the obvious being the headlights (which we've already discovered). the other day (right after getting my car back from the body shop where it had $8,600 worth of body work done) my wife backs into someone's car and the reflector on the back bumper pops off. after close examination of the reflector, it says right on the lense "2011WK". WK is the designation to the grand cherokee platform, so i looked at one on my lot. sure enough, same reflector on the grands.

anyone else know of any parts that transfer over?

I thought the bumper reflectors looked the same, good to know. Now, if only they would come out with aftermarket headlights for the Grand Cherokee/Compass! Thanks for the info!

FYI, I can confirm that the Compass headlights are bolted on by 2 bolts on the bottom of the headlight to the frame just like the GC. You can check my original http://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums/...html#post23379 post for additional info. I have a link there showing how to remove the GC bumper, which the Compass should be similar.
