Thanks! I have taken it in yet but their estimate is bwtn $300-$500.A remanufactured starting motor for a TJ will run around $130-150 for the part. New looks to be in the $175 vicinity (if you can find one). Labor should not be over an hour for this job. Starter changes are relatively easy on a TJ. I would expect the total cost to be around $250. Call your auto shop and ask for an estimate.
