I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee with the 4.0 I6. I was wondering how long the alternators usually last. i have 160,000 on mine and im starting to worry about it. i just recently installed 8 off-road 55 watt lights. i have external speakers with all modified internal speakers and deck. once in a while my alternator will jump down to 9 amps then when i turn everything off it goes back to 14 and i can continue on. i was just wondering how long these alternators have lasted other people and weather or not i should be worried.

thanks,
kyle

kyle if you hadn't already done so you should change your battery to something like an optima yellow or red top that will help maintain the current for some of your accessories also if you have any amplifiers etc... you could upgrade to a higher current altenator.I'm really not sure what the life should though
