    I installed this starter in a 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo. On this model vehicle, the starter is easy to access and nothing else needs to be removed to access the starter. The exhaust pipe is not in the way. This product came with new bolts to attach the starter wire, but you will need to use the original starter mounting bolts. There are only 2 bolts to remove to install the starter and both bolts are different lengths. It's just been over a week since installing the starter and I have had no issues. It starts very rapidly compared to the old 221k mile wore out original. I have no complaints to report about this product.

    As several reviews state - going back several months now - there is a problem on the current production run with one of the bolts holes being mis-threaded or otherwise unusable. So these starters are useless. As of late January this is still the case and Advance Auto has done nothing to fix the problem. Apparently they would prefer to knowingly sell you uselsss junk rather than fix the problem. The best you could say about Advance is that they don't bother to read their own reviews. After wasting my time at Advance - I went to a competitor and got a starter for the same price - which threads perfectly and works fine.

      Jeep starting having trouble turning over in our last bout of sub zero weather, than stopped all together. Had the starter and battery tested and needed a new starter. Call Advanced they held one for me I put it in and it started better than when I first got the Jeep. Easy to install (15 minutes) and worked great out of the box couldn't ask for more.

        Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

        The starter I bought for my Jeep serves the purpose for which I bought it. The price was a lot cheaper than I expected for that vehicle. The only problem I would address is the automatic promo code being a charged back to my credit card. I think in should be added on at the counter at the time of purchase instead of a charge back. That takes time to register to my credit card account.

                I needed to replace the starter motor on my 1999 Jeep Cherokee Classic. I went on line to the Advance Auto Parts web site because I have always found them to have the quality parts I need at a great price. I almost always shop the web and order parts for store pickup. There is always a promo code on the site for additional savings. I ordered the starter using PayPal, got a discount and then picked it up at my local store. I had the old starter with me and the core charge was refunded to my account the next day. The starter went in easily, and has worked flawlessly ever since.

                  I installed this myself correctly and then the car would not start. Had the car towed and it started every time so I drove the car away from the repair shop, the tow cost $70.00
                  One week later the car did it again, click nothing, had it towed again for another $70.00 to a different mechanic. He said the new starter was bad, tested the entire starting system. Said the company only rebuilds what is bad and it is poorly re-manufactured, he re-installed another one, same and it is working, I'm very upset because it took extra time and money just due to poor cheap workmanship Go with a more expensive replacement made correctly. I had the original 2001 starter in the car so it did last.

                          Bought this online and picked up in store. I was in and out of the store in less than 5 minutes. Very smooth transaction with the core return to the store equally fast and easy. Installed it on my 99 Cherokee and it fit perfectly and was an easy install. It's been on a couple of weeks and is working great even in sub-zero temps.
