No they're not.
The ECU and relay mount posts are totally different between the two variants.
If you have an SP2, make sure you obtain an SP2 fender.
And if you intend to mount a Hotbodies undertail (or possibly other brands), don't make the mistake of simply cutting straight across the fender.
That's what Hotbodies has you do in their instructions, and it's totally lame.

Instead, make a cut (in the form of an elongated square "U") along the inside edge of the fender, following the subframe rails and then across behind the tool kit holder.
In this way, the fender is fully supported by the front, middle, and rear mounting points as on an uncut fender.
The undertail can then be mounted to the fender areas.

I even went farther and used plastic scrap from the cut to fashion mounting tabs to secure the rear portion of the undertail to the rear fender mounts.
the undertail is solid as a rock with none of that flapping around that would occur with the Hotbodies method.

Makes for a totally stable and secure install, with all your relays fixed to their mounting posts instead of being zip-tied to the subframe or worse, left to bounce around inside.

Search in the forum, I have some photos of how I did mine as an example.

You should search on duck hunters build thread, he has a battery tray you can use. Also you wouldn't have to cut into the under tail either.

The one I have is for a SP1. I think I gave the SP2 one I had away.
