Question about Cars & Trucks
Can always go to a automotive electrics shop that work on these things every day.Sounds like you need a bendix with one less tooth on it.Still would be close on diameter configuration,but one less toth would cure the "Cram".I have done this with some pieces of equipment that werent perfectly matched from factory.This type thing is why I'm called "Rigger".I fix anything.

I would shim the starter, most modern starters don't need them they are manufactured not to, but it sounds like the block on your truck was damaged or not made quite right. If they don't make one specifically for your starter I have used washers before, hard to get them pinched between starter and block but with a little patience you can do it.

SOURCE: 2001 Chrysler starting problem
fuses are'nt linked to startor that's a relay as I have mine ran to a car-PC with voice start. ANyhow you would need to look up in owners book fuse location chart. What fuse socket that keeps blowing runs to, my guess is it blows before you start car as soon as your ignition goes to accessory then it kicks on that fuse bank. DO NOT STICK BIGGER FUSE IN AS THIS COULD CAUSE FIRE. first find out what that fuse controls.. is it the fuel system, radio, PCM ect.. could be a ignition fuse but these tend to be bigger what size is the fuse you blow?

that sounds correct what happens is the starter still tries to engage the flywheel and grinds the teeth off both. Replace switch then worry about starter flywheel if it starts fine don't worry about it you may have saved it if you didn't let it run that way long

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.
