i wanted the lower reduction gearing ,reduced weight and to be honest the polished aluminum housing of the mean green starter.
the extra money at the build time was just a drop in the bucket.
but they do make good starters and alternators

I run a mean green starter on my YJ that i use for more hardcore off road wheeling.
The gear reduction on the mean green will allow you to use the starter to restart your jeep if it stalls on a hill or rock without pushing in the clutch it you disable the clutch safety switch . And if you live where it gets extremely cold and your battery ca become low a mean green reduction gear starter will still spin the motor fast enough to start it.
If you have a auto trans and or do not do a lot of hill/rock climbing just about any starter will work for ya.

|Rubicondon53||No need for the Green starter.. Buy Mopar,, tough to argue with 100k miles and still going strong..|

Can't answer that for ya, but my 00 TJ 4.0 starter went at 152k.
Picked one up from advanceautoparts. Google advanceautoparts cupon codes.
I thinks it's: trt41 and it should save you $40on a $100....
Had it a few months now with no starting issues....except the bad fuel pressure reg.

whats a good starter?
Going to pick up a new starter for my tj today. Was wondering if just any auto store starter is enough or should I get a mean green? I've read up on the differences just not sure if it's worth the extra money.
