The starter on the 4.0L, which I will assume you have, is connected to the bellhousing of the motor on the passenger side. It is a long cylinder with a smaller cylinder on the top. If you can not find it, trace one of the red cables from the battery as that goes down to the starter. It is one of the easiest repairs on the 4.0, as their are two bolts and the power connections. One bolt on top, one on bottom, cable to ground, and positive feed cable from the battery.

Are you sure that the starter requires removal? For all I know, maybe you just like pulling it on and off every so often for kicks. In this cold weather, I would suspect the battery over a starter in relation to hard starts, unless you are in Miami.

That was my next question, why do you need it off?

I mean i don't want to sound judgemental but what are you going to do with it when you get it off if you couldn't locate it?

my starter would just click, and yea, it was the starter ... its not hard to replace, but this was a few months ago before I started learning how to work on the ole Jeep (HINT: get a Haynes manual...). Its all of 3 bolts....

It could be the starter solinoid. If it has gone bad that might explain the one click. Other possible problems include bad connection or corroded electric cable from battery, worn out starter brushes. All are pretty easy to fix or replace.

Nice!

You're still going to want to change the starter though, tapping on it is good for a 150-crank bandage fix, but you're going to be running into the same problem possibly worse down the road. Get a refurbished starter from Advance Auto I've seen them going for less than 60 bucks.
