I've only seen the fast click with a battery problem. The solenoid engages, the starter coils instantly suck the battery voltage so low that the solenoid drops out, that makes the voltage go up again, so the solenoid clicks in again, and on and on.

are all you connection good and clean? you might try a different battery or jump the jeep when starting it to see if the battery ain't putting out hte juice.
