YJ Wrangler Alternator wire upgrade

I have a 2.5 YJ Wrangler not sure if it's 75 or 90 amp but I am upgrading to a 136 amp from a 98 Grand Cherokee 5.2L. My question is do I have to upgrade the wiring? Thanks

Yes sir I would. The factory wiring is crap and WAAAYY undersized not to mention old. I would highly recommend it. Its not too hard either. Just bigger wire to the alternator and starter if you want. Check out my build thread in my sig. I literally just did an alt swap and have pictures of all the wiring I did if you want ideas as to how to go about it. But yea suck it up and just run bigger wire.

89 YJ.. My first jeep and I won't let it go. ▀||||▀

Current Project: None... I disgust myself.
