Need HELP!

So my jeep isn't starting. I know it's the starter and I want to just replace it myself with a new starter but I'm having trouble finding where the starter is located.....does anyone know where the starter is located on the '97 Jeep Wrangler?? Any help or suggestions would be great!!

I guess you gotta stat somewhere. On 6 cylinder engines (fill out your profile BTW) its located on the passenger (RH) side of the bellhousing. Follow the big red cable from your + side of the battery til it ends at the starter.
