Will the Dodge Power Wagon's 5.7 starter work on my WK?
 
My starter showed the signs that everybody on this forum talks about for a dying starter. I'd like to resolve the problem before it leaves me stranded and I was curious if I could install the same starter that's on the 2006 Dodge Power Wagon 5.7 (my vehicle has the 06 5.7 in it). My dad has this truck and he has 90k+ miles on it and has never had any issues with the starter. In addition, the Power Wagon starts up real strong, where my WK starts up real weak, so I definitely do not want to replace the WK starter with the same one again. Any input you guys have would be great. Thanks.

Starter was dead this morning... unreal on the timing with that. I'll ask the service dealership if they can fit the Power Wagon starter on my WK and let you guys know what they say.

I spoke with the Chrysler dealership and they told me the starters are different. They didn't think I could hook up the PW's starter to mine because things such as amperage on the wires could be different and throw everything off. At this point, I guess I'll start looking for an aftermarket starter.
