That is a 1/2 banana job with only a single wrench needed... 3 bolts IIRC.

My TJ's starter is well used, I don't see how installing a working used starter could hurt anything.

if it's used, get it tested, then bolt it on. easy, just make sure it's lined up right. it should last a while assuming something other than age didn't kill your current one.

I have to ask, what is the meaning of 1/2 banana job?

Maybe it means that a baby monkey could do it?

A fast easy job, you can complete it before finishing a banana. A difficult or long job would be a 4 banana job.

Test the starter you are going to put on by attaching a ground (-) from a 12V DC source to the ground on the starter and then touch the positive (+)wire to the hot post (battery) on the starter. the starter should spin very fast.
