Will a TJ starter work?

My Jeep started making a nasty noise for a short period after I start it. From what I've gathered the starter is having a hard time disengaging. Anyway, there's a brand new starter on ebay right now, says its for a TJ. TJ's and YJ's have the same starter as long as they have the 6 cylinder motor right?

When I went to Autozone the part numbers for the 1995 YJ 4cyl starter was the same as the 1997 TJ 4cyl starter, so yeah I think it would work.

I ended up buying the one at Schucks/Kragen/Checker/Advance for $85 rebuilt I think.
