Junkyard Alternator Upgrade for a 2005 3.0L?

Is there any other alternators that will interchange with my 2005 3.0L's that kicks out more amps? I dont "NEED" more amps, but if i were to run my accessories at once, it'd hinder things. I have about 60amps between off-road lights and my electric fan on high alone.

I have the overdrive pulley for the alternator. I'm not saying that I don't have enough charge, I just usually overkill stuff.

Hmm, so a 130a from an explorer is a drop-in?

IIRC when I replaced my alt I read where some people swaped in Explorer alts.

AFAIK alternators are pretty basic...it just depends what type of bolt pattern they are. You could probably snag one off a diesel and go crazy with 200a :) or whatever they put out
