    you shouldnt need one, i had a stock honda alternator at 130 amp with the optimal yellow top with two JL Audio 500 watt amps. The alternator was DEFINATELY not charging my battery so for weeks we could not figure what was wrong and finnally my car set on fire and it was because the wire I had from my deck to my amps burned completely off. It wasnt a secure connection, then the person that put my alarm in didnt have good connections, same thing with the capacator and my speakers even, so i rewired EVERYTHING and now my alternator charges the battery fine and bass hits EVERY time and my lights dont dim at all. It could also be that your alternator is bad. You should first check all the connections make sure they are absolutely PERFECT and then check your alternator to see if it is charging the battery at the right voltage and the right amps.

    Good luck

    You should be fine, i've got a 135 amp ford alt in my f-150 and it handled a 1200.1 @1ohm fine.

    It's beginning to sound like a broken record, but 130A should be good for a couple thousand rms. You have another problem.

    Yeah

    Yeah, i have a stock alt on in my ford fairmont futura running an 800W system and it works pretty well, from time to time the sound is distorted beacuse the Volts go down but if you have a 130 there is deffinatly another problem. My alt cant be topping 60.

    Yea, you probably have a different problem, like everybody else said. However, IF you really really wanted one, www.mralternator.com has them for $225.

    I dont think that Ford Rangers come with a 130amp alt. ford usually is rather poor when it comes to stock alts.

    Actually I think Ford began using the 130A pretty regularly in the mid 90's. Plus, trucks generally come with larger alts since people tend to load them up with more accessories than the typical sedan or coupe.
