Starter is shot, need a new one

So I need to replace the starter in my '08. Anyone either have one for sale or know where I can get a good one, preferably new not reman., for a good price?

I'm toying with the idea of rebuilding it too. Anyone ever done a starter rebuild? I'm looking for a step by step write up if anyone knows of one

Thanks

When mine was going out I found out how much they are online $105 and called a local dealer. While they didnt match that price they came pretty close. Try it.

Here's the part number 5030023AA

I know you were swaying away from reman. but you can get them at you local auto parts store for 180 ish and find one with a lifetime warranty. This is what i did and so far no problems. besides the pita install.

its a pain in the ass to change! BUT, i just had it happen. you MAY NOT even need one. let me find my thread. But champion jeep priced one out for me and it was a helluva lot cheaper than any parts stores. Long story short, i pulled mine out. took it apart. cleaned the hell out of it with electric motor cleaner. put it back together and been working great ever since. that was over a month ago.

Starter is shot, need a new one

Thanks kmitch. I'm leaning towards pulling it out and taking it apart and try to clean it up and replace the inner workings for less than $40 for parts.

Thank you all for your input, keep it coming. When the weather warms up ill let you all know how I make out pulling it out.

Got the starter out yesterday, picked up the new one (reman) from the local Jeep dealer this morning. Surprisingly it was the cheapest one I could find, NAPA, Pep Boys and Advance were either more expensive or it would take over a week to order. Hoping to get it installed tomorrow, it's been raining all day today so no luck today.
