MITSUBISHI MONTERO BATTERY PROBLEM

2001 Mitsubishi Montero • 300,000 miles

I have only one issue has come up in the five years that I have had this montero, first is a bumping feeling while I am driving, like it is missing, or cutting out. To correct something, its a 96 montero with a 2001 engine 3.0. Last night, I shut the car off to go into a store and came out and it would not start. It tried, struggled, after a few revolutions, that was it. Clicking sounds started. Called a wrecker, and they tried to jump it and nothing. Battery shows good, alt shows good. Left it parked overnight and it tried to start, and at the last microsecond, it started! Being old schooled, I think loose ground wire. But my old school doesnt work on new cars. Can you solve this mystery?
