dumb question

Alright guys, this is probably a pretty stupid question but here goes. My starter went on my 97 jeep, 2.5L and seeing as how I canít afford a new starter right now (my tuition is due in 3 weeks) and that there are virtually no jeeps in salvage yards, I was wondering if there are any other vehicles you know of that may use the same starter (long shot a know, but I don't really have 250$ for a rebuild starter right now)

Park on a hill and roll-start until you get $100.
