That vehicle uses a small CS130 unit. We only build large case units, because small case HO alternators do not have enough cooling or low RPM output. We have a late model large housing conversion kit for $449. It puts a large 220 amp unit in place of your CS130. Because we use the larger housing, our unit has great output at idle, and bomb-proof durability for daily use. We machine the housing and include a clearance bracket so that is has the same bolt pattern as your OEM unit. On your particular vehicle, it requires you to grind the OEM alternator bracket for clearance. Our complete kit is $449 shipped.

Gotcha man, TY.. Im trying to decide If Im gonna do a full blown setup in this car or not.. If NOT, Would the stock electrical, one run of 1/0 run back and a 3100 be fine for a true 3K rms?

That would be OK. One of our adjustable voltage 150 amp units would help out quite a bit over the stock alternator, we could build one in the OEM housing for around $250 and it would still be durable and have good idle output.

Our custom machined units actually utilize their own internal regulator, and send out a dummy signal to the Jeep regulator so that the alternator light doesn't come on. This way we have a standard 14.7 volt colt regulator setpoint.
