Another alternator thread

I know, I know this has been beaten to death, but just a quick question .... Lookin to put in a 136a alternator out of 97/98 ZJ, should I be worried about the stock wiring in my YJ not being able to handle the new load?

The alternator does not put out any more power than it is asked for.

Meaning, the load is the same until you start adding lights, winch, etc to take advantage of the extra power available. Then you may need bigger wires.

^Correct!
Stock wiring will be sufficient.

But if your battery cables are not in good condition, it would be a good idea to change/upgrade those at the time.
