The Tremors come with a higher output alternator. Going through a dealer would probably be a lot of $, but I'm sure you could get one from a parts store for less.

Regular is 95amp (at 2000rpm not idle)
Tremor is 110 (I think)
You can find a 80amp idle/200 amp max easily
www.mralternator.com

Or there is a guy on ebay that sells a ton of remanufactured ones.

Try a red top optima instead.

Yeah the red top will work better unless you are deepcycling your battery such as running a winch or something like that.
