Default no start. dead battery?

jeep would not start tuesday even with a jump. took the battery out and had baxter auto parts test it and charge it. put it back in wednesday and it still needed a jump to start but it started and ran. went to start it again today (thursday) and no start just a click. wouldn't even start with the jump from the other jeep either.

dead battery?
starter?
alternator?

Try cleaning all contacts + and -. If you have the older ferd style solenoid try jumping over it with a couple of screwdrivers. If the bat is testing good I would think either solenoid or starter.

do you have a winch? When you put the terninals on the battery does it spark?
