Re: 2005 Jeep GC 5.7L Starter upgrades?
I think the consensus here is that the OEM starter is the way to go. That being said, depending on your symptoms, your starter may not actually be dead. If you're just getting clicks, it's probably just corroded connections (many on this forum can attest to this). Mine was totally unreliable at 85k until I had them install a block heater and clean the connections at the same time (since it requires removal of the starter). Ever since then (2yrs ago and at 105k now) it's been starting like a brand new Jeep.
