Might wanna consider converting to an internally regulated alternator. Try searching google.com for alternator conversions. I remember stumbling across several sites when I was contemplating a CS130 conversion.

How do you decide you need a regulator just from talking to a mechanic? The symptoms of a bad regulator can be from a bad connection on a good regulator. My point is you can't really know for sure just by talking about it. It needs to be tested. Take the Jeep to someone who can do an electrical test on it. Most parts stores do it for free. So does any Sears automotive dept. Find out for sure what the problem is and go from there. A regulator isn't very expensive and should be under $20.
