    what model jeep do u have? I have a cherokee and i found out my alt is 117 amps. If u have a grand/libby expect the same power from alt as my cherokee. If u have a wrangler, expect something lower(~90-100). Anyways give the spefcs on the amp, u didnt even give the company's name for gods sake. And a cap won't help ur lights from dimming...

    ...also how much does it cost to get an alternator rewound and where do you do it at. when do you know you have to get it rewound?

    I definitely suggest u get alt rewound. You probably have something in the 80-90 amp size alternator. 1200w may be too much for it. Just look in the phonebook for alternator shops. A good way to go by is around $1 per amp rewound. Thats just estimate maybe more or less
