I got into the truck after work heard the click…then nothing. I don’t enjoy being stranded, so even though it is most definitely the wrong time of year to be laying under my truck, I replaced the starter. Its tempting to carry a spare.  I do carry a battery jumper, but this starter should be good for a while… and the old one has been starting sluggishly for a while. At least the new one has a lifetime warranty, so when it dies it will be a free replacement… provided I keep the truck for another 200k miles.
