You have at least a 98 judging by your avatar. I got my 130 at MrAlternator.com and it works great, no problems.


PS: If you have 4.0, it should say on the engine, manufactorer ID, and/or manual. I don't think SOHC came out until 2000, they are about +50 more HP than 3.0, compared to the pre-2000 4.0 being at +10 HP compared to the 3.0.

I just bought one for an Explorer at a tire and battery place remanufactured and all they asked was for the bolt configuration and mine was an "H" style.

HA ha, DURRRR. Noticed your sig after I posted :D

I still got my 95 for back up in the garage. You really don't need to go bigger less your truck has a gigantic sound system or a butt load of accessories. I just got it because the previous owner had original everything on the truck at almost 95K.

A 130 amp alt from an 96 Explorer 4.0 OHV went on my 2002 3.0 OHV with no problems.
