All local shops in my area sell rebuilt starters at the same price for which I bought this brand new starter from 1A-auto. So what that I had to wait a week for delivery, that was the least of my worries at this point. Plus shipping was free. The choice was simple, go with 1A.

Purchased this starter and it arrived within a few days and in excellent condition. After fighting with where Jeep located the starter (take out the drive shaft) the installation turned out fine and is working great. I have used 1aauto for other parts and they are always high quality with comparable pricing to other sights. Very pleased with their website, video install instructions and service.
