Amps indicator light on dash is on
My brother has a 74 CJ-5 with a 304. He says he was driving in town and at a red light it started idling funny and then the amps light on the dash came on and the jeep went dead. He couldn't get it to crank. I think it may be the alternator (or does it have a generator), and if it's a generator what do they cost and where do you get them?
Thanks for the help,

It's an alternator and you should be able to get it at any local parts store

Based on what happened, I'd check all of the wiring connections first; from the battery on down. Something may have wiggled lose.

Mine had same.... a wire had come off the back of the Alt... very obvious and instant fix. Just go for a run in the Jip after you jump it as you'll need to charge up the battry.
