Reports are that any mileage increase is negligible. I predict you'll never get back the expense of a part-time kit by savings in fuel. The Quadratrac full-time works really well, and you will like...

The diodes in the Delco alternators are quite reliable. That said, if one of the six diodes fails open in the rectifier bridge, the output will be reduced by 1/6th. There is also a voltage reference...

Do you have a multimeter? If the alternator is charging, it will hold the voltage at the battery at something like 13.5 or 14 volts. Compare that to the battery voltage with the engine off, which...

Possible I guess. The inline 6s are way way way worse about this than the V8s, but the V8s can and do leak at times.

This is an interesting solution. The I terminal of the solenoid is only hot while cranking. With the ignition at 'run,' it's physically disconnected from power. No backfeeding.

You could refer to a Jeep factory wiring diagram for a '78 or newer J-truck. A '77 truck with a V8 came with a Motorcraft alternator. In '78 they changed to the GM 10SI alternator.

My understanding is the full-time cases are not up to the impact load of a manual transmission. That's why they are always offered with automatics, not manual.
