Kc hilights ?

As some of you guys know im still in the process of building my front bumper. As to now I still have to get it line-X and put the lights on it . Now my question is I wanna get bright *** lights for the bumper, but i need to make sure it wont be too much for my alternator. i have a red top now but i still am a little worried. i wanna put four Kc Hilights slim 130W long range on the bumper right in front of my grill. So as far as the lights being too much for the alternator any advice would help me on my decision. also looks advice would help
here is a couple pics of my truck and bumper as of now

i think you should be fine but if you can get your hands on an HD alternator it certainly wouldnt hurt

I think your truck could handle the lights. What amp is your alternator?

You may have to upgrade the alternator. I believe you have a 95 amp

A 130 amp off an expo would be a nice upgrade
