Default Alternator alternatives??

I was thinking today that my 3.0 is interchangeable with other venicles. I might need to replace my alternator, I will find out tomorrow or Monday. What other, if any, models' alternators can I use?
I'm new to Rangers (and am not too smart when it comes to them) nice.

1997 Ranger XLT 2WD 3.0
3.73 Gears (I'm fairly positive)
No Mods. Bone Stock.

Default Re: Alternator alternatives??

Since I work at a parts store I looked in the alternator catalog to see what other units would work without a lot of mods. I found a mid 90's E series 130amp would fit my bracket. You will need to upgrade the wiring to the alternator and get a larger belt in some cases. Now my 94 has more than enough amps to do just about anything.
94 Splash 2WD, 5sp, 4.0L, Custom paint, Black-n-Red interior, Lots of go fast goodies!

93 XLT Ext Cab, 4x4, A4LD, Cayman Green / Tan, More or less stock for now.
