They likely share the same "Saginaw" mounting pattern, but as already stated, be careful when looking for replacements due to different "plumbing" options. The J20 box (year model dependent) will likely have flared fittings, which should be what you have. The majority of boxes for newer stuff is for the most part all o-ring fittings and IIRC, a better option for the TJs than CJs.
