I think that only Ranger alternators will work on a Ranger. You can buy an aftermarket alternator with a higher output or have your rewound for a higher output.

what style alt is on ur truck now? it is probably a 3G but it could also be a 4G. google 3G altnernators and read. u will find out which u can upgrade to. the 4G isnt so popular and isnt as easy to swap one to another.
