Is it a 2.9? I had the same problem with mine, I ended up putting a Ford escort starter gear on it, and haven't a problem since. Disregard, I didn't see 4.0l forum

if you have a manual trans make sure you are not using an automatic starter as it may not fully disengage from the flywheel.

Also, make sure that if you are having chewing issues you replace the starter and flywheel together. If one is damaged it will take out the other.
