I agree starter is problem, not much else would cause a single click other then a seized engine which is unlikely. If banging on starter doesn't help you can use a meter to monitor voltage on both wires going to starter while trying to start. They should maintain at least 11v while trying to start, if so replace starter. What year and engine size is your Jeep? I'll upload replacement instructions for you, thanks.
