Alternator is a simple job. I've had a few XJ's that required jacking up the engine an inch or so by the oil pan in order to yank the alternator out.

Been reading up on it and most are saying to pull the battery and box and remove from the top.

Even then you might have to jack the engine up a tad. Not really a big deal, just use a block of wood right on the X on the oil pan and lift it slowly.
