Clutch Pulley needed!

I posted elsewhere and it's not showing in Active topics so sorry for the repeat. I'll add a pic of the new bumper but heres the issue.
My alternator clutch pulley sounds like trash. It just started outta nowhere and it sounds like it's not going to last long. I do long distances for work so I gotta fix this fast.
I'd like to replace just the pulley if possible since the alternator only has 75k miles on it. I actually just replaced the batteries for $400 just 3 weeks ago. Another $459 for an alternator would suck.
If I cant get just the pulley, would it be possible to upgrade to the 220 amp alternator without alot of fuss or extra cost?
I also recently bought a 12k winch and cradle so I think the bigger alternator would be beneficial but not a necessity.

Any help is really appreciated!! Oh yeah 2016 Lml

I ran into this several years ago. I found a source for the pulley from a local starter/alternator rebuild/supply shop.

Problem was, the cost. I found it was a better deal to just buy and swap in a new unit.
Rock has your OE unit, $216. (spend half of that for just a pulley)


Or if you think you'd benefit later on with the 220, add another $100 to it. (difference is internal)
Even the Dealer Parts is cheaper than the ridiculous parts store price of $500.

Thanks Hook, I tried every source i could to get just the pulley but nothing was coming up.
I'll try Rock for the direct replacement unit. I got the winch pretty much knowing I'll use it once every couple years just like 4wd lol. For 20% off $400 at HF it was worth the little extra peace of mind. I'll wait for the next alternator to go out before upgrading to the 220 amp.

I too scored the 12k winch, mounted to the big trailer for recovery insurance.
Have yet to use it, but it's there. That plus the ball mount receiver on the rear, I can snatch a disabled truck and trailer and get 'em back to home base, pulling doubles.

Oh, and the replacement Alt....has lasted longer than the OE one.

Yeah after had to use a come along to get my dad's POS car on my trailer I told myself I'm getting a winch when the price is right.

I'm waiting on my quick connects to arrive. Gonna have 2 set ups. One for the front and a second with a 24' jumper cable setup. That way I can mount it on my trailer while still hitched or put it on someone else's stuck rig to get them out. Or just put it in my rear receiver to pull myself backwards.
It all fits nicely in my tool box. Had to trim 3/4" off the cradle hitch but still works. All I ever tote in the box is emergency stuff anyways.

A winch is seldom used, but when it is needed nearly Nothing else will do.

If you dont' have one, a snatch block and a chain to connect to something solid comes in handy too, doubles the pulling power of the winch

When I lived in N CA and I used to crawl around in the mountains hunting and sometimes just for the hell of it.

I had an old F40 Landcruiser and an old F100 4wd w/(NO POwe Steering) and that winch and snatch block got me out of a couple things I would not have gotten out of without them.

The First time you NEED it, you will be glad you have it!

I added a second alt to my truck, but if I was going to replace my stock one I would use a dc power 270xp... that is what I added as my second one. 200 Amps at idle and 270amps max.
