Well you could check your belts, they might be slipping with the extra load on them. Also it is possible that the alternator is bad from the manufacturer. The best thing to do is run to the local Autozone and let them do the free test on your electrical system. They will diagnose it for free.

..... oh, and for the record. Jeeps are unofficially known as "Money pits".
