Default Help on European JK

Hello All, I have a 2008 Sahara JK Unlimited with 2.8L Diesel, stock in Italy recently purchased. I am interested in purchasing lighting, winch, snorkle and other accessories. While some are specific and can find the 2.8L info, it doesn’t clarify if the diesel makes a difference. I have also heard that the electronic can be different. So...
Has anyone done work on a European stock JK? Ideas? Info? I am back and forth to Italy, so I want to purchase here and freight there, as I have not found any aftermarket online (that i could understand) and when I have asked questions in auto part stores, I seem to know more than they do.... So any help is much appreciated!
Thanks in Advance

I'm about 90% sure that the diesel uses the same snorkel setup as the 3.8L does. The lights and winch shouldn't make any difference, though the European bumper is different from the US market bumper. I don't know if you're planning on swapping it out or if you can, but that may be a bit of an issue.

Look forward to seeing what it looks like when its done!
