    Re: alt help

    the money you spend and time to fabricate a bracket to mount a second alt, you might as well buy an ho alt. they can be had for like $300

    Re: alt help

    i'm gonna take a stab at this but if this second alt is just for your stereo then i would imagine you can just add a second battery in the back and have the second alt charge that battery and hook your system to that battery.

    bad idea. Use one alt for your original stock equipment and use the second for the system.




    Don't PM me, I'm not here. Find me on SSA or ROE
    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.
