    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.

      Excellent starter for my 99 Cherokee! Easy to install and it starts up much faster than the original one did.

            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.

                                            starter works like it is supposed to. The first one I picked up was bad so I had to exchange it. The second one works fine. The thing I have a hard time with is that when I exchanged the bad one, they put it back on the shelf, because their test equipment told them it was good. I feel bad for the next person who gets it.
