2 Year old Starter took a dump on me-3.7 WK 2005

Been having some battery cycle issues recently, got gas last night went to start her up and nothing, a weak crank and then just solediod noise. Tried jumping it and to no avail. Smelled a strong odor of electrical burning from the starter motor. Is my less the 2 year old starter motor fried again? Please help, could it be the relay?

2005 3.7 WK with a less the 2 year old starter. Ughhhh

update battery was OK, starter took a dump. This is starter #2 for me. I Have put well over 66K miles on my Jeep since I get her. Either I do to much driving, replaced with a bad one the 1st time or they only last 2 years. The starter is in a bad spot and does get very hot from the exhaust.
