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.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
