EagleSJ, Do you happen to have the advance auto part number handy? This is a good price.

WorldwideAlternator

Part No 12328

Advance Auto Parts: Alternator by Worldwide - Part 12328

remember though its only online. then you can select pick up in store if it is in stock at your local place. I had to wait for shipping cause mine wasnt. They also have a deal out now where if you spend 100 you get 50 back on a gift card. good deal i think!

For your year of YJ, google "YJ CS144 Alternator Swap". One of the best modifications I've made.

I went ahead and bought the 160AMP alternator for my 05 Rubicon, but it's nice to know that it will also work in my 04 Grand Cherokee as an upgrade to the 132AMP alternator! So if I don't like how it fits on the Rubicon I can just slap it into the Grand Cherokee. Since my OEM Alternator on the Rubicon is 117AMP should I still upgrade the wire running to the battery?

I would, there's no reason not to.

I would add another run of 4 gauge in addition to the stock wiring. This is how the 'big three' upgrade is done in the car stero world.

I just did this upgrade on my 05 LJ last week. I used the 01 to 06 Durango 160A alternator. I cut the extra arm off with a sawzall. It is completely plug and play. I went ahead and replaced the 2 negative cables coming from the battery to the firewall and block with 49" and 32" 4 gauge battery cables that were premade and on the shelf at Auto Zone. I also changed the positive wire from the alternator to the battery with an new 2 gauge cable. The stock positive wire has a fuse link in it. I purchased a 200A fuse holder with digital meter on ebay to replace the fuse link. The only time my dash voltmeter moves now is when the electric fan kicks on. This is a must upgrade if you decide to add anything that will pull more voltage.

The core is so inexpensive, I just hung on to mine as a spare but, as mentioned above, they will accept it.

I got mine installed tonight with no problems. I was going to cut the extra arm off, but I'm running double platinum plugs (Champion 7034) so I shouldn't need to change my plugs for a longtime (it fits fine and has about 1/4 inch clearance) and if I have to warranty the 160AMP alternator I won't have any problems since I didn't modify the casing. I haven't upgraded the wiring yet, but I will be upgrading it soon. The promo code (LC123) for Advanced Auto saved me $40.00. They wanted my core but like mentioned above I think it was better to just keep the OEM 117AMP alternator as a spare.

I'm going to do this when mine goes or I get a winch. I thought I'd share my research I've done on this.

The 01-06 Dodge Durango 4.7L V8 and 2004 Dodge Durango 3.7L have the 160A alternator option that will work. It's OEM P/N is 56029914AA and is superseded by P/N 56029914AC.

If your buying used on eBay, watch the P/N as I found one listed as 160A but is the 136A alternator (P/N
56029700AA).
