I have a 190A alternator I am selling, it's a DC power alternator. Can you take a pic of the alternator you have now? I'm about 95% sure it will work. I had issues putting it on my 4.0 but it should be fine on the 3.0 and 2.3. Check it out.
The pics should help you identify it, if it looks close it's the same one. but check the clearance on the backside of your alternator and make sure there is room because this alternator is a little larger.

Or find a local shop to rebuild and rewind the original.

Since you got stuck with a unit that doesn't fit I wouldn't like it either.

I was asking $340 shipped. that includes 1/0 wiring and 1/0 battery terminals. Feel free to make a reasonable offer though.
