    you can fuse it but it's not a necessity. I didn't fuse mine and I had no problems.

    Agreed, it's optional imo. Some people may fuse just to feel safer though

    Re: need info quick

    Need to match the wire/length rating if your wanting to fuse. Just did mine and everyone reminded me it isn't necessary, but if you want you need to match the length/wire.
    Here.

    for now get another batt for the rear. ultimately the best upgrade is a highoutput alternator from Tenney, singer, excessive amperage, etc.
    the battery will help take the dimming away be cause youll have more reserve energy, but all in all your alternator will still be working just as hard.
    always fuse the wire for its capacity, not what the amp takes.

    True. Extra battery would be good. Best upgrade would be upgrade current batter and alternator

    what vehicle? most 4 cylinder motors are 90ah to 120ah, 6 cylinders 100-140ah, 8 cylinders, 100ah to 160ah.
    but it really varies. typically care uses 40-60% of the alt power however.

    I couldn't imagine how I'd feel if my truck burned up because I didn't use $15 worth of fusing, paid $49k for it.
