I've been looking into this all night, but I can't find a definitive answer so I don't want to say yes or no at this point. My thinking is that there must be come difference or they wouldn't sell them as different years of compatibility, but that doesn't mean that it's not something you can get around. I've read that the hinge holes were 1/2 inch off and another person said that it was just the latch position. I'll keep looking and when I can actually give you an honest answer, I'll let ya know what I find, unless of course someone has actually accomplished this feat and chimes in with details.
Ricola have you checked your local area Craigslist for someone parting out a YJ at all? I've found it to be a pretty good resource for used parts.
Hope to be able to give ya info. I'll be sure to let ya know ASAP.
