Can I swap passenger side wiper motor to drivers side?

So had a little mishap on the trails the other week. Bent the knob that turns my drivers side wiper blade and now the motor is useless. Can I swap the passenger side to the drivers side? I live in Washington State so it's pretty important I get this done quick. Don't have the money to buy a new motor right now.

there arn't individual motors for the wipers in a TJ. It's a single motor connected to linkage

Remove the cowl and take a look at what's really damaged.

can you imagine how hard it would be to get 2 motors in prefect sync all the time on every jeep.

agree with above, check linkage.
