jeepnjeep is just really nice
Starter went bad at only 49,000 miles?

OK. I'll try to make this short. Yesterday morning, waiting for my son and his family to arrive so we could all go camping. Jeep all loaded, started it up and backed up to the camper. Shut it off and found I'm not in position. Go to start it up again and I get CLICK! Test battery and it's good. Clean terminals still just a click. Chris gets there and goes under the Jeep and taps the starter which is buried under there. A few clicks but that's all. We locate a starter at AutoZone ans the wife goes to get it. Chris and I get under there and have to remove the friggin front driveshaft to get the starter out. Hard as hell to get at the friggin' thing! Wife gets home with the starter, we get it in and she starts right up. WHEW!!
So here we are in the Newburgh KOA having a great time. Wanted to leave home at 9:00 AM but got on the road at 11:30 AM instead. At least we got here.
I'm pissed the starter went so soon though. Oh well, y'all have fun and I'll see ya on Sat at the meet!

Yep, situation normal.
Mine went at around 20,000 miles.
In fact, it's beginning to sound a little "different" to what I'm used to, so I think I'll order a replacement to minimise the downtime!

I am on my third starter at 60K. This has been my only complaint though.

Yeah, I'm glad it was in my driveway too but wow this sucks! I'm on my land in the middle of nowhere pretty often. It happens there and I'm up shit creek without a paddle! I might have to bite the bullet and get another one to bring with me when I know I'll be remote. Throw it in the Jeep with some appropriate tools. Fawked up!
