2005 Jeep GC 5.7L Starter upgrades?
Are there any? Mine just busted...Not opposed to doing it myself and going big? I don't have any knowledge as this is the first one dead on me oddly... Thank you!

Anyone even have how to video or images/guide for my model?

Mine just died on my 2005 Hemi last week @ 50,000 miles.
Very fiddly/tight job to replace if lying on your back under the vehicle.
I paid an auto-electric shop to do the replacement and got charged 2 hours labor (which was O.K.)
Don't believe there are "beefed-up" after market starters available, I just put another Mopar OEM back in

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.

The starter in my 05 quit at only 60,000 miles. Purchased a remanufactured one from advanced auto with a life time warranty for cheap. Took around an hour and a half if I recall. Not hard, just annoying. Jeep starts better than it did when I bought it with only 44K
