    Amazon has 160, 200, and 250 amp alternators built by DB Electrical. I'll install one of them in the next few months.

    Anyone have experience with alternators by this company? Good or bad.

    i'm going with 2 standard alternators. those high amp ones are kinda crazy expensive, then i just keep replacing with junk yard alternators. but i of course am poor so this is my best option lol. for sure 2 standard ones is the safe bet

    It's not hard to ease some of the issues with alternators such as bearings and so forth. Bearings are probably the number one failure of alternators, the second being the internal voltage regulator which can be replaced. Just keep your battery in good condition, I broke an alternator diode pack with a deteriorated battery.
