ZJ D44 and TJ D44 covers the same?

I picked up two spare D30 covers while I was out at the junkyard recently off XJs. I figure that until I buy a Riddler, I can use these if I puncture my current cover. Well I'd like to get a spare for the D44 but TJs are non-existant in my local junkyards and I've had no luck finding a XJ with a D44.

I hadn't through to look at the ZJs while I was out because I was mostly looking for axle shafts and I know the ZJ D44 shafts won't work in mine. But I hadn't through to look at the covers. From what I've seen online, the bolt patterns are the same for both so I wanted to see if anyone could confirm or reject that the cover from a ZJ D44 will work on a TJ D44.

Villanova Wildcat!

the ZJ 44 has an aluminum center section and is a completely different axle than the TJ44.. so, no.
