Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
It definitely sounds like the starter is stuck, an old trick that used to work on V8s in muscle cars was to get a hammer and tap the outside of the starter a couple times. This mostly happens on starters with internal solenoids, tapping a couple times will unstick the solenoid and may let you start the car. This is a sign of the starter failing and you should replace asap. Stores like Autozone will test it once you have it removed from the truck.

If the connections to the battery are clean ,and tight,and the battery is good,and you know this for sure,then the starter is the problem,they are a low gear reduction starter,and are bad to do just what yours is doing,the starter is the most likely problem,if this was at all helpful,please rate thank you.
