If you are not getting factory quality parts, they can keep failing at a very fast rate. When the Jeep does not start, does that battery still have at least 12.6 volts? The headlights working is not a sufficient test, you need to measure the voltage. Does the Alternator put out at least 13.8-14.1 volts when the Jeep is idling with all electrical loads off, i.e. the lights, wipers, heater etc.
