Starter Replacement

I am looking at replacing my starter in my 06 F250 and was doing some shopping for a new one. I can't wait for one to be ordered so what is the recommended choice in local parts? I have an Autozone, Oreillys, and Napa near me, all are around the same price.

I have had good luck with autozone starters.

Just do not over tighten the nuts on the studs for the wires. Especially the small one. I use blue thread locker on them and snug the nuts up using a quarter drive ratchet.

I learned that a 3/8 drive ratchet will break the studs.
