Check for shorts on any of the cable coming from the battery. One of them may be draining the battery, winch cables, aux lights, radio, clock, alarm, etc.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....

X2, also did you check the Alt. on or off the Jeep, it may be putting out a charge but not getting to the Bat. have it checked on Jeep if you did not already...

if you have a multi meter check resistance on all the cable leeds. especially the ground from the bat to the block. what happens alot is that cable runs near the exhaust manifold, melts off the insulation and corodes.

After upgrading my alt to a 136 amp... installing a yellow top Optimia. It is freaking amazing how quick your charging problem goes away after you replace the blown 50 amp Maxi fuse. Thank you Jerrold. I will be carrying an extra 50 amp from now on.
