Thats quite a bit, my buddy just ran a 1000W amp for 2 subs on his ranger and he blew his alternator, but it was like a 85

Stock '93+ alternator is 95A.

I would say that unless you have the 130A option alternator, I would upgrade to atleast a 150A alternator.

Are you running all that at the same time?

Don't worry about it then; even the 95A will keep up.
