factory amp alternator

what is the amperage for a 01 ranger alternator, and what alll can that power? (second battery, extra lights, etc) is there other year rangers that have bigger alternators that will install the same way?, i only ask cuz i got plans to build a roll bar and bumpers equipped with lights, i also run a 1000 watt amp and hids, and a full led interior conversion.... i want to be able to power 6 more 100 watt lights

Yes it will power the lights, but it will strain the system a bit.

Upgrading alternators is a good idea anyway. Especially if you plan on upgrading your sound system

I'm running 6 of the old style KC 100 w lights off a 150 amp and not coming anywhere close to having power issues when the subs hit, so yeah you can run a few on a 130 with a system....

I know you can run the 130 amp with no wiring issues, but can you run a 200 without doing damage?

the napa one i posted you need a wiring kit

here's the part number and price for the alternator $369.00 NNE 1N3108HO
here's the part number and price for the wiring $109.00 RAY 1331K

NAPA Online

if 130 amps can handle what you need then go with that instead $478 for the 200amp setup is a good chunk off money

Excellent... I was wondering what interchanged with what...

92-05 Ranger 2.3/2.5/3.0/4.0L

Alternator - Ford 3G Series IR/IF

Used On:
(1993-92) Ford Aerostar 4.0L
(1996-93) Ford Bronco 5.0L, 5.8L
(1996-93) Ford E Series Van 5.0L, 5.8L
(1994-91) Ford Explorer 4.0L
(1997-93) Ford F Series Pickup 5.0L, 5.8L
(1992-05) Ford Ranger 2.3L, 2.5L, 3.0L, 4.0L
(1994-91) Mazda Navajo 4.0L
(1999-94) Mazda Pickup 2.3L, 2.5L, 3.0L, 4.0L

Question though... why does it show the 94-91 for Explorer.... on the Explorer page it shows... 91-01 Explorer 4.0L VIN "X"

Fits 4.0L Engines with VIN Code "X"(8th digit)


I would imagine the Sport Trac alternators would work too with the rangers?
My 02 3.0L's alt is pulsing the lights pretty hard and I need to grab one before this one fails.
