High output alternator

What make and size alternator are you guys running. I have the 258 and I am looking at upgrading my alternator and want to make sure that I get one big enough to support the add on's that I still have to do. I plan on running 4-150Watt lights, a winch, possibly 2-60Watt back up lights and maybe even 4-50Watt rock lights, as well as the obvious stuff like the ignition, dash and head lights, a stereo, etc. Is there a good site to visit that would help me with this?

A good alternator shop can upgrade you to a 95 A alt. That in conjunction with 2 batteries will be enough to run what you need. If you really want to go more, check into one of the welding alternators. If you don't have a good alternator shop around you, call Bart at 717-399-9951. He can hook you up. Hamy.

Do a search on ebay, I took a quick look and found 160 amp (I think) for something like $130.00. And it comes with a 1year warr. too.
