I have a 95 Eddie with towing package. Alternator went out several years ago. Replaced it with a 95 amp from local auto supply. My Question, what is the correct alternator amperage for a 95 Eddie with a towing package ?

The 95 amp you have. You can upgrade to a 130 amp with no wiring changes necessary but advised.

Broncos came with 95 amp alternators no matter the options. If you want more amperage get a 130 amp alternator for a 1995 Explorer it will bolt up with no mods

Yup 130amp Alternator in mine and all is perfect now, no flickering or loss of voltage at idle, Rock solid. You won't be disappointed, the Stock Alt was/is 95amps, it's just not enough, marginal at best on my 95 with Towing Package.....

FYI: you can ID them by looking at the holes.
4 holes = 95A
2 holes = 130A

Depending on how you wire it up and where the additional amperage will be directed, you may want to consider adding a 175A mega fuse holder or simply adding the OEM fuseable link out of the same application that the alt came out of.
Even the original fuseable link from a 95A truck won't be a problem UNLESS you draw that extra power THROUGH it.
