I don't think I'm wired for duals. Where would I get a high output one?
How do I check mine to see what it's rated is it just I'm the case or on a sticker on the case.

If it stock then it's probably the 130 amp.
Duals would give you 2x or 260 amps.
That's why it's better to go with the 220 amp single.
By the time you get the wiring, belt, second alternator and mounting bracket. ti's a lot more money than the 220 amp single. Not to mention a royal PIA to install duals.

My stock 110amp ran my memphis belle just fine.... Can't imagine you will need more power than that.

Ok then single HO is what I'll do

Ya it may work for awhile but I'd rather be safe then sorry that I didn't upgrade. Plus it gets cold up here and I'd rather not the batteries die cuz my system was pulling more then my stock altonator could put out and be stuck somewhere needing a jump in the dead of winter.
