I've read somwhere, on some jeep forum which i do not recall, that you could swap out the stock alternator for a higher ampage one from something like a dodge 1500 or somethin like that...I was looking for the exact car that I could snatch this up from and wondering if anyone has done this and how it worked out. My alternators dying and I'm broke. thanks guys

I haven't done the swap myself on a jeep but have done alternator swaps on other vehicles and its pretty easy. Like just taking a plug off and some bolts and then doing the reverse to put one back on.

I belive the 5.9 jeeps have 150 amp alternators (I would suggest this. The 5.9 was only available in 1998 I belive so it could be rough finding one). I've heard that dodge trucks that have 5.9 and some others with v10s make an easy swap upgrade. I've also heard these tales from some pretty reliable sources. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will be along to correct me shortly.

I have a 5.9 alt.. It is a direct bolt in and works wonderfully.. I can completely recharge my winch battery in about 5 minutes after a good hard pull with the engine off.. And if I leave the engine running the volt meter hardly stutters when winching..

DEE DE DEE!!! Razz wat a dunce i am!!!
i have heard about the altenator swap and got all excited... then when i wanted to do it i couldnt find anything on here about it.. what a dork alls i had to do was make a new topic.. damn i like to shit the hard way i guess..


what is the deal? ANY 5.9 dodge altenator is a DIRECT bolt in? it doesnt have to be a 98 grand, but can be from a dakota as well? where did you get it? junk yard? bout how much?? my "ALL JEEP" jeep graveyard part dealer likes to stiff me .. prolly cuz i have a zj. puss.. he told me 400 for a 75k np242.. i told him they are 600 for a rebuild.. he hung up...

There are several vehicles that have this alt.)

The part number on the alt will be...5602 7913

just like that..

It comes in .....

1997-1998 Dodge B.Series Van
1997-1998 Dodge Dakota
1998 Dodge Durango
1997-1998 Dodge Ram Pickup
1997-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee (limited and 5.9's)

Its not in every single one of any of these vehicles .. You have to look at the number on the alt and get the right one..


I got mine out of a Dodge ram in a bone yard.. I actually pulled 2 and have a spare in the garage for one day if I need it..(No its not for sale.. Finger )


As long as its a 5.2 or 5.9 it will bolt right up to your engine...


Oh they will bolt on to the 4.0 Jeeps as well..

I paid $25 each for them.. And I thought that was steep for a Junkyard alt I thought..

But well worth it.. they are $160 or so from the parts store..

The cable broke on me once and I replaced it ...Then one day the stupid latch broke on me and I couldnt get gas.. So I pried it open with a screw driver.. Then I fixed that... Then about a year later (maybe less) it broke again..

I ripped it right off the Jeep.. Then I bought a Wrangler fuel inlet surround and gas cap ...Problem solved forever... Mr. Green

The lever is still there.. I am going to hook it to my Ejector seat one day... rofl rofl rofl
