Starters can be installed and non-op. I once drove from Georgia to California in a Fiat X-19 with a bad starter. Funny enough?

no! try again. my amusement must mean everything to you. lmao.

i once burned up a starter when i ran out of gas about 1/4 mile from a gas station. used the starter to get me there in first gear. luckily the gas station had a slight grade to the street. it took me another week before i decided to change the starter. good thing i live in a town where no one is gonna jack your ride if you leave it running unattended.

YKYDAYJ when you can confidently say you can fix almost anything on it with a crescent wrench, one phillips, one straight blade, (mediumish sized) half a roll of duct tape, some type of lashing, and a BFH!

Took my yj up to 98. This is with 33's on it. That's in third. That's the only gear that I can use to get there and hold it.

not all YJs have a 2.5L or a 4.0L, just sayin.
i have had my YJ over 100mph on a few occasions. never anywhere that has any large bumps or curves however.
