I do just need to replace the solenoid, correct? Not the whole starter? And if so, will any replacement solenoid fit (let's say a Duralast on a ToughOne rebuilt)?

Stopped at a friends house tonight and when I went to leave, my '89 YJ (4.2L) wouldn't start. The starter turned over (as it should since it's only 2 weeks old) but that's it. No lights. Nothing. It...

Could My Starter Be Bad?

Went to start up the ol' YJ this morning. She turned over once and then nothing. The starter won't even turn over. It sounded like she was dying over the last few days. It's not the battery. I still...
