My alternator is just about shot and it is time to replace and upgrade at the same time. The idiot light just came on permanently tonight after it has only been coming on when starting in freezing weather, defrost on full..
I will be running upgraded headlights, fog lights, upgraded wiring and a stereo (nothing ridiculous) in the near future when I have time to install.
I have purchased upgraded battery mains and an Optima battery.
As for the problem alternator, what would you recommend?
I cannot afford a Mean Green, but wish to install one that has a lifetime warranty or is at least a solid, quality unit. $200 range is OK as I don't wish to purchase another one any time soon thereafter. I'm looking for a direct bolt on, minimal fuss.
It is a 1998 Cherokee, 4.0l with the regular spark plug wires, etc.
Thank you for time and any advice,
