It was a huge pain doing this without instructions. Here is what I learned from trial and error.
\015\012Disconnect the battery, of course
\015\012To access the starter, you will need to remove the lower right exhaust.
\015\012To accomplish that, place a hydraulic jack under the 4wd transfer case and remove the cross-member (4 vertical bolts in the mount, 2 horizontal bolts on each side, and 4 vertical bolts on each side underneath hold up the cross member). Lower the drive train a bit so you can reach around the transmission to unplug the 2 right-side O2 sensors (to see what the plug looks like, look at the rear left-side of the cross-member).
\015\012Cut the exhaust in half (in the middle of the vehicle), remove the bolts from the muffler, and the right manifold. You may also want to loosen the left manifold bolts. (make sure you have extensions, a breaker bar, and some penetrating oil). You may need to raise the drive train again to get the section of the manifold out. Once that is out of the way, take the 2 bolts out of the starter, and the sockets to remove the wires should be 8mm, and a deep 13mm. You may need a special folding ratchet to get to the other side of the starter.
\015\012To put the exhaust back together again, cut about a half inch more from the place you cut the exhaust and piece it together with a 2-1/2" coupler and clamps from Autozone.
