Wow, I've never even seen a shim on a starter. I have had a 93 & 95 L4 and a 94 L6. Is this something that was only done to the 91 and earlier models?

You can try a hillbilly starter tester. Take a battery charger and hook the ground to the battery caseing, then touch the positive to the stud on the starter where the positive battery cable bolts on. If the starters spins fine, or doesn't grind, it's not the starter.

Yes missing bolts could cause the problem you have. For one the engine and trans are not properly seated. The second the center line is not straight.

I don't know about YJ's but when I replaced the starter on my Mom's Dodge mini van it had a shim on it.

As far as Advance and Autozone, they sell the exact same parts in a different labeled box. Look up parts on their websites, they have the exact same part numbers with maybe a few letters in front of the number added. Napa sells the same parts they do too but do carry some different brands, depending on what I'm looking for I'll go to Napa but always look online to see if I'm buying the exact same part as Autozone or Advance. If so I go to whoever has it the cheapest.
