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?

1992 Wrangler Sahara, 4.0L, 5spd, RE 4.5 XD lift, Fox remote reservoir shox, 33x12.5-15 BFGoodrich All-Terrains, 15x8 black rock crawlers, JK rubicon pneumatic swaybar, JKS quick disconnect track bar, Teraflex HD SYE, Tom Woods driveshaft, Ford 8.8 w/ 4.10 gears and arb locker, D30 w/ 4.11 gears and arb locker, York 210R OBA w/ Kilby mount, Dynomax Ultra Flow SS muffler, Alterstart 165A alternator, TJ flares, and Poison Spyder rocker knockers.

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.

1999 TJ, 4.0, AX15 5-Speed, NP231, Dana 30 open 3.73, Dana 35 Detroit Locker 3.73, Rough Country 2.5" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, 2.2 shocks/stabilizer, JKS Discos, 33 x 12.50 Mickey Thompson MTZ tires on 15 x 8.5 MT Classics
