Will a 2001 alternator fit in a 2003 (4.0L)

Will a 130 amp 3g alternator for a 2001 4.0 fit in my 2003 4.0?

check the clocking...if they are the same then everything will fit fine. you can find this out by running up to autozone and asking for these two alternators. the clocking is listed in their computers.

Finally got around to installing it today. Other than the tensioner pully being a pain in the *** to move with the fan in the way, it went in pretty easy. And as an added bonus, it actually works! At idle with the AC compresson on, blower set for high, wipers on, high beams w/ 130 watt off-road lights, hazzard flashers, stereo, and 50 watt VHF radio transmitting, the gauge didn't budge and the lights didn't dim.

I happy.

Any idea if that alternator would work in a 3.0? I would like to get something higher then the stock 95 amp...didn't the tremors have a 3.0 w/ a 130 amp alternator?

personally if I was going to upgrade to a 130.. id just toss a 200 on there.
(most) 130s dont really put out that much more than stock at idle.

I got this thing for a whopping $60 on eBay. That's less than any reman'd alternator from a autoparts chain. The price was perfect for this thing. At the time, a 200 amp one would have been a lot more $$ so I went with this one.
