I am assuming it is a 4.0 engine. The Altenator is located on the passenger side in the front of the engine that you will have to get to from the bottom. you should disconnect the battery first, then unplug the wires that are going to it. then look for the bolts that are holding it in. just take them out and whalaa!! Just be careful not to let it fall onto your head while getting it out.
