Very good info here for an alt swap, not sure if you need to register but it's worth it if need be.

Flogging now over....


As for the alternator, I always say buy the biggest baddest thing that will fit... I knew of some that put duals on their CTDs when I drove the BFT dodge

I`ll take the wench upgrade,, but if its an alternator we are talking about upgrading,
go with a 105 amp.
