I did a little research, decided to go with the PowerMaster unit (purchased from Summit).

On order...
I'm also in the same boat. My truck is 22 years old with pretty much just maintenance done to it. I was going to jump in this last summer and do a few things but other priorities got in the way. Perhaps next year, I just hate laying in a parking lot trying to fix a broken truck.

New starter was ordered Saturday afternoon (see my post above), and was delivered today! Gotta love Summit Racing! Since I'm in SoCal, and their warehouse is in Nevada, it's basically "order today, get it tomorrow" (or next business day...).

Anyway, nice looking unit. Fit perfectly, and the wiring is towards the bottom, so much easier to connect Bat and switch wires. Also came with three new bolts (it utilizes all three, unlike the 2-bolt Denso units).

And, it's Made in USA (according to the box), so that's a plus! (for me anyway).

Had it installed in about 30 mins. And DAMN... Never had my truck start so fast! As mentioned before, my truck always starts quickly anyway (usually only 2-3 "cranks"). But now, it's just "bump the key", and it's ON! Might have to pull the IDM relay just to see exactly how fast it is turning over!

Question is: will it last...? Lets see if I get another 18 years before it needs changed again! LOL
