Default Alternator HELP

Hey guys
I have a 94 jeep grand cherokee with the 5.2. it has a externally regulated denso alternator 90 amp on it (5300 8647). Called a junk yard to get a bigger one as i have converted to an electric fan and have a winch and they said they had one (told them i wanted one that was out of a 98 zj with the 5.9) Got home with it and did not look at it and is NOT out of a zj. It looks to be out of a dodge 99 and newer and is internally regulated. (denso 56028 920ab)

Question is there an easy way to convert this internally regulated regulator to work on my external wired system?
Thanks.

What's the amp of the new one? I put a 100 amp on my Xj which I was told was a "direct bolt in but would be tight" and I can tell you it was not... It took a lot of grinding to get it to fit.
