Alternator info Please!

Hi guys! I've come to the conclusion the Jeep Gods are demanding another sacrifice and THIS time it's the alternator. So, I pulled it out tonight (yes, I got bored and did this at midnight) but it is a remanufactured one and so I can't read what amps it is. And SO this is my question. What amp alternator do I need or do you guys recommend? I am HOPING Napa or AZ will have the one I need in stock so I can get her all done tomorrow.

I look forward to getting your input. Thanks!

Jessica

I got mine at NAPA. Told them the year model and stats, and they gave me two amp choices. When I got home with my pick, which was a 60-something amp alternator, it was bad out of the box. So heads-up! Made in China.

Tracked one down at AutoZone. Just put it in, so far so good. Tnx again for all your help. And as per request here is my girl....

Just took that one this morning on our customary "Woohoo!! I got it to work!" Bump down the trail.
