The old one lasted a bit over 2 years. Don't know if that's good or not. Maybe next time, when I suspect it's going, I should research starters.

Recommendations?

Good friend of mine in Chico just replaced his. Hes closing on the 300k mark soon. There are a 3 bolt and 2 bolt version but for some reason the 2 bolt has a much stronger motor and will noticeably spin the truck over faster. @blue99stroker may be able to chime in with what he did. He had his normal 3 bolt fail and needed a starter asap and hes been very happy with the one he has now.

Good luck with it. Hopefully you will get a long life out of the truck now.

What was the final bill and what all did you have done?

Anything picture worthy please post.

Ever since I've had the truck, it has only had a 2-bolt starter even though the bell housing has 3 holes. Hadn't given any thought to having a 3-bolt starter. I hadn't heard of the differences in motor speed. Good to know.

Not actually to it - but for it

I carried this in from the UPS guy. So I can fix a small leak.

They are not cheap by any means, but they last a long time. I have been selling these for about 5-6yrs and have only had 2 warranty claims out of 100's sold. One was a warranty that I fixed. The contact plunger inside the solenoid just had something stuck on it so it wouldnt make contact to engage the starter. I scrapped it clean, and it's been good ever since.

Thanks Corey! I'll definitely keep that one in mind! Looks beefy enough. Your price isn't too much higher than the one I just bought. The key will be to order one BEFORE the current one quits.

I have a DB Electric denso knock of a friend had bought for his truck. He paid $109 off Amazon. He gave it to me because he got rid of truck before he installed it. Its been in about a year now with no issues. It really turns engine over alot faster then the stock starter. It was for free so it was for me lol. Some of the DB reviews arent that great but its work good so far. Just my 2 cents.
