    alternator upgrade

    I know the AD244 alternator fits in our cars but from what years? I know sjsingle did a write up about it and used a 2003 GM truck. I was looking at this bosch alternator on amazon:

    Amazon.com: Bosch AL8731N New Alternator: Automotive

    But it says it doesn't fit 2003 model which is weird. I can't find any place to confirm if it will fit. Is a good price. I can always order a brand new from autozone for around $160.

    Thanks.

    I thought I read somewhere that the truck alternators from 1999-2003 worked, but I could be wrong.

    I recently had to replace mine after it took a dump on me. Turns out the brand-new one was bad, also, and had to get it replaced.

    1999 - 2003 truck alternators will fit but some of them have different size bolts.
