You need to loosen the alternator so the belts become slack. Look for bolts on top and bottom that attach the alternator to a bracket or the engine block. Loosen them and the alternator will move. Since the belts hook to other accessories, you may need to loosen them too. To get them back and the proper tension, you'll need a large screwdriver or pry bar to put tension on them as you tighten the bolts. I suggest you get a Haynes guide for this model that will have photos showing how this is done.

I had the same problem when trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2001 Trooper. The Maintenance book was very vague and I couldn't tell exactly how the tension was taken off the belt, but it did clearly identify the tensioner pulley. I first removed the pulley and looked for some kind of slot that would give me the adjustment I needed, but no slotted adjustment is present on the 01 Trooper. I had to do some research so I pulled of the tensioner assembly and found that there is a spring coil which keeps tension on the belt constant, and eliminates any belt alignment problems.
The Litens style tensioner uses a spring to apply pressure towards the serpentine belt. The way to relax the spring is to use your 14mm socket and ratchet and force the pulley down by driving the pulley nut in the clockwise direction. This forces the spring to compress and the pulley to drop giving the needed clearance to get your new belt in place.
