Default Alternator upgrade questions

I got my build sheet and according to it my xj came with a 124amp. I know others came with larger so id like to upgrade so I dont run into.issues when I do my lights and winch. What others came stock and are they a strait swap? Also how can I tell what one is what, are they stamped on the case?

If i remember correctly you can switch to an alternator from a Dodge Dakota with the 2.5L in it.
