what alternator are you going to run???]
where are you going to install the new battery???
Would the alternator bolt bracket also work for the battery negative to chassis?
Hmm thanks, I'll have to take a look around the trans dipstick then.
Right now, I'm just keeping the stock alternator. Between being consistently like 5F with -15F windchills (some days -13F/-35 wind chill) and the stock battery getting older, the Jeep seems to struggle a lot just trying to crank. I planned on replacing the starting battery in the stock location with something a bit beefier and more cold cranking amps. While doing work, might as well throw in some larger gauge cable to make sure it's pulling everything it can from the alt. Between my 4 channel amp and sub amp, they're putting out about 1400W RMS. I know the math doesn't add up to run off the alternator, but considering I don't listen to test tones all day, I think I can get by with a nice deep cycle battery as voltage drop is very minimal off of the stock battery.
