Upgrade Alternator?

Has anyone upgraded to a higher amp alternator? Not even sure they make one. I was thinking in terms of winching or jump starting etc. Quicker recovery. Thanks

Yep the factory alternator is really all you need for winching etc. The best upgrade you can do is when you need a new battery, go with a really high quality heavy duty battery like the Sears Diehard Platinum P4.
