I believe the ZJ v8 alt all you have to do is grind down the stock XJ alt mount and it fits in the same location, I'll try to find the write up for it.

Yeah all you have to do is clearance the brackets.
Yeah that is what I thought. I read its a good idea to upgrade the wires too. Ideas where to buy that?

Online wiring places would have the best price, but advance should have 00 wire kits, and if not any audio or marine grade (preferably this) store would have it.

I was looking on Napa and they have a 120amp XJ alt. Im just gonna go with that. the 90amp that just died did fine before so another 30 will def be fine. Makes the install easier and makes my wallet happier too haha

Put in new alternator tonight. Went nice and smooth. gotta drill out stripped nut on the crossmember and just through bolt it. i would much rather that than a goofy cross threaded half nut lol

yeah way before you were a pain in my ***




Got the 4.56 gears in it this weekend! I was so use to the 3.55 and 33s it really doesnt seem that much different to me, but i also havent driven it on the highway yet. Litteraly picked the jeep up drove about 10 miles to my GFs house, get there and see oil everywhere... pain power steering line blew so needless to say since its 630 on a sunday and no where is open i wont be fixing it tonight haha the local napa has it so ill get it nice and early and haul *** home to make it to work

Gotta give props to A to Z Fab, they were awesome guys to work with, the owner Zach is a super nice guy and went out of his way to help me so much respect to those guys! For gear install, and a new rear u-joint and install was $600 with tax and all. Like i said very pleased!!


Now i need to wheel this thingy

Something defiantly isn't right in the rear axle. The pumpkin got so hot in couldn't touch it. I'm guessing gear mesh is way to tight. Since it was so hot I'm assuming the bearings are probably toast :'( gonna take back to shop hopefully they make it right. I did manage to do 285 miles before my gas light came on lol than front driveshaft crapped out. So I can't catch a break like usual. So much for big wheeling trip this weekend :/ thoughts on where do get good driveshafts?
