    I have the JMF coil pack relocation bracket and I am now going to relocate the alt. to the rear of the engine. Looks like the alt. will be in the way of the coil pack bracket. Any one ran into this issue? What did you do to correct the issue? Thanks.

    They work together just fine. I have them both on my car. I will say it is a pita though as far as fitment. Just tight areas. A lift make it a lot easier or going in from the bottom for certain things.

    Here us a pic of the bracket used with jay racing kit. I would try to put the coil pack bracket on first rather than working around the alternator.

    Oh god from up top, ya it's nearly impossible. Have to do it from the bottom. It's still a pain but works. Your ac has to be removed.

    So is it easier to take off the intake and go from the top or take off the transfer case and go from the bottom
