FYI - Just to add to this info....
On a Hemi 4x4, it is possible to do this without several of those steps. (I just finished doing a starter replacement, unfortunately in my office parking lot!)
Rip out fender liner
Remove two 15mm bolts, 2 small heatshield bolts, one *really* annoying power clip and one13mm nut for the power line.
Pull starter out via fender hole.
Install in reverse.
No driveshaft removal, don't even have to jack up the car, nor pull the tire (2" lift helps I suspect)
Took 1:20 as I was racing against darkness...
and pray you have good dexterity with your fingertips, and a flexhead gear wrench is a plus too, as everything is a HUGE pain to reach in such a tight space, but it is possible!
I need a beer...
