Have you tried posting on the Original Equipment Forum

Otherwise it sounds like you need a new starter or at least remove it and have Autozone, Pepboys, Kragen test it for you.

Crawl under your rig and give the starter a couple of good whacks with a hammer, if the starter seems to work better, buy a new starter. I had to do this to mine when I first got it. :mrgreen:

Thank guys for the info. This morning I check the relay but that was ok, then I took the starter out and checked it outside the jeep and that was ok. I did notice that the terminals were all dirty so I clean them and installed the started back on the jeep and back in bussness.
