Starter issue

So my starter went. I have replaced with a brand new one. I get one click when turning the ignition, but that is it. I have checked all the cables, tested the battery, cleaned terminals, connections and grounds. A friend "jumped" the starter while it was in Jeep and it worked. What am I missing? Any other troubleshooting would be great please This is day 3 beating my head against a wall.

Or you battery is a little low and your cables may have internal corrosion further down under the insulation. They are not expensive measure the length got AZ or Oreillys they have em on the shelf make a huge difference especially 50 miles off- road.

It ended up being the positive battery terminal. Go figure. Quick fix though.
