My '03 took a 160amp from autozone (rebuilt by worldwide) with a part number of 12328. That was autozones and worldwides number.

I have an 2001 TJ Sport. Does the '02 5.9L Durango Alernator bolt in and wire up directly? Or are there some other mods needed?

depends on how nice your cut looks. the parts guy probably won't even notice. if it dies you could always get a rebuild kit for it, or take it to an alternator place to have it rebuilt

I just did the upgrade over the weekend. I have an '01. I got the alternator from an '02 4.7 Durango. I gave back the stock alternator as the core and they didn't even look at it. The new one was very easy to install. Just ground about an eight inch off the inside of one of the bottom arms and left the extra top arm on.

I think there is some confusing information on this thread. I have been trying to gather research for my 03TJ on what 160 amp alternator will work.

I just want to know what dodge durango amp I need to ask for that is a direct bolt in to my 03TJ. Any help is greatly appreciated.

What does this mean? I just go to Auto Zoo and this part # is a direct bolt in to my 03 TJ?

Is this true?

So to recap, a 2004 Durango 4.7L 160amp alternator is a direct bolt on to a 2000-06 TJ 4.0L. Same mounts & same pulley grooves. Cool beans, I'll add that to my upgrade list.

I called Auto Zone today and gave them part #12328, it came up in the computer as 2004 Durango 4.7L 160amp alternator. It was $119 + $60core, so $179 total. I believe it is rebuilt.
I am going to call some local recycling yards and see if I can get one cheaper.

Pretty sure that is the one I have in mine now. If you do use it, test fit to find out if you have to cut off the extra arm. I didn't have to, I have 1/8 inch clearance around the coil pack. That is the only issue that you should have with it.

As far as the core, I gave them my old one, and they never opened up the box.

Could you post a pic of the alternator in the hooked up?

Would a smaller pulley on the alternator help eliminating the need for fast idle? Does such pulley exist and have anyone tried? Thanks
