I have changed several alternators in my time, but none in the last 12+ years.

One's I have changed were much easier. Jack up the truck, disconnect the battery hot lead.

Crawl under truck and disconnect the wires on the alternator. Support the alternator and take out the 2 bolts and lower the alternator to the ground.

Hard part is to lift up the new alternator with one hand and get a bolt started to hold it up.

Job takes 1 hour tops.

My truck is 11 years old and alternator still working good.
