Hi I have a 2005 rubicon the starter died was covered under warrenty but i was wondering if any of you know about siliconing your starter in cold weather if you are in water alot. I have a friend at work that told me you have to i'm new to this 4wd stuff anyone else silicone there starter to keep it water tight? It started fine till the temp went to 11f overnight i was in water the day before??

Ive never heard of it, but that dosnt say anything. Sounds like a good idea, but youll never keep all the water out.

that looks tough to do.. keep al the water out of it... The only thing i can think of when siliconing it is it will keep water in... I say that because when you are in water pressure will press it in and then it wont have much pressure to get out of the starter. and the silicone will keep it in. Perhaps maybe you can drill a hole in the bottom of it or something? Keep us updated with whatever you find.
