    It won't fit. GM alternators are huge compared to the one in your jeep.

    No I, on the other hand, can use it on my XJ.

    You can make anything fit. Do some research and see if anyone else has done this swap. I would guarantee someone has.

    The stock alternator on Cherokees with A/C and power windows and locks can push a lot of power. I ran my sound system for years with no issues, not even dimming of the headlights. I had a high power Pioneer premier deck(200 watts), 1,000 watt amp and a 350 watt amp. Powered amps through a 1 farad capacitor to help with pulsing. With the low power drain from newer LED lighting you likely would be fine with upgraded stock alternator. IIRC I used the 136 amp alternator from a 97 Grand Cherokee 5.2L with no grinding(over 40 amp increase). The mean green alternator is pricy but produces lots of power even at a low rpm. Quadratec has a few options.

    Here is a list for other parts too

    If you are willing to give up air conditioning, you can mount an alternator up high and have room for a bigger case. There is not much room in the lower mounting location.
