I believe its the number of windings on the field coil (I think thats the right name for the outer windings, not the windings on the rotor that spins off the drive belt).  You can get high output coils for some Delco CS alternators, but not sure about other makes and models.  There's nothing you can modify yourself at home that I'm aware of

I use a liquid graphite spray you can get at a parts store.  My superduty bushings like to squeak too.  The squeaking may be coming from the leafsprings themselves rubbing together.  They do make Teflon/nylon pads you can stick in to separate them a little.

We ran the spicer 18 from a willys because of the offset rear end on the quadratracs.  The dana 20 share the same case and have a center output.  We never found a stock replacement combo that would fit so we bought the advance adapters kit and ended up have to replace the transmission output.   You might be able to make a spacer and use the original ten spine input gear found in some of the dana 20's.  You could get away with this in a long wheel base.  We needed the shorter shaft on the CJ7. Even if you found a stock GM TH400 combo you would have to swap internals since the Jeep TH400 has the round bellhousing bolt pattern. They probably make an adapter for that too.

I always buy the Napa Performance Select 84 34/78 Group size (top and side posts).  Under $100 and its 800CCA.  Plus its a 24 month free replacement warranty and 84 month prorated.  I Have them in three vehicles with the oldest one still running strong in the Willys with 8 yrs of offroad winching and starting duty.

i have a fsj th400 and a fulltime t-case in now. put a hand me down low - range box in and made a world of difference.i want to make it way simpler than having all of that hanging off my trans . now i was talking to a fellow jeeper and his brother has a cj that was quarda- trac equipped ( same engine 360ci and th400 set up). they took the borg warner out and put in a dana 20 i think.. the fsj did come with dana 20 and th400 combo i believe. i found a 73 commando  3speed  trans and t-case and was wondering if the in put would take the ten spline shaft that i have, it does  stick out of trans a good 7in. to long to just put a dana 20 on?  want to make is simple and be able to run a front locker with the rear i just put in, i was told the fulltime case dont like front and rear lockers they pop chains and is to much for them. any info would great..

At peak demand, a winch can draw 500-600 amps. 

500-600 amps was a bit high.  I just checked the specs on mine, which is a Warn 9.5 XP.  It's 480 amps at the max line pull.  Warn recomments a minimum of a 650 CCA battery.
