no they are different sizes as you can see above. However, the Display unit and the light unit can be swapped between the 2 sizes. The garage holder one has the standard bracket, while the sunroof one has a different bracket. All you really need to do is get a reg sized OHC from the JY and swap in your parts.

I can't imagine the dealership would sell those anywhere near as cheap as they can be had on eBay or from a jy.
