H/O Alternator

who's running them and whats a good brand?

my winch pulls the bat. needle down to where it sits when the trucks off
that coupled with the Hellas, and maybe OBA at some point, i need something better than 8 y/o stock lol

im planning on getting an Optima too, so that takes care of the "you need a better battery" argument lol

I'm running a 200 amp alternator on my truck. I bought it on ebay for around 100 bucks. It took a little work to get it to mate up to my 5.0 but it seems to work pretty well with everything I run. It's made by Motorcraft, called the 3g, which comes in different outputs. They have some around for even 60 to 70 bucks that put out 130 amps.
