Grinding noise=bad starter or damaged flywheel. Pull it and inspect the teeth, replace the starter. Shim if necessary.

Inspect your flywheel when you take the starter out. Yes, replace it.

To add to Que's statement...

To make it easier to inspect the flywheel. Leave the starter on but remove the dust cover so you can see the flywheel that the starter turns... Then remove the center wire on the distributer comming from the coil (so the engine will not start, but will still turn over). Then you can have someone crank the motor while you are underneith the jeep, you can watch the flywheel turn while your friend is cranking the motor. Checked for chipped, missing, or damaged teeth.
