Altenater upgrade?

Hey everyone, next step in my stereo upgrades is a HD altenater, would love to hear what you have to save about models
And their pro/cons

Looking for good quality at a good price ( the usual ) lol

Right now I have my two 12" kicker subs, kickers in my sound bar, and replacing my tweets and other mid with kicker as well, 1000w alpine amp, putting in a new deck after the altenater. Plan on running a separate amp for kids and tweet as well. Oh, and a 400$ odyssey battery in there as well ( most expensive part so far haha )

So ya...let's here what ya got

You really shouldn't have to upgrade the alternator. Have you done the big three?The Big 3 Upgrade – Improve your Car Audio Output up to 25% | Sonic Electronix Blog. If you are still dead set on an upgraded alt. you can have yours reround, or check into a mean green alterator, but not sure if they make one for a jeep.

this is what i have in my wrangler and in my subaru, you should also do "the big three" the big three is when you up grade both ground cables on your battery to a 0/1 gauge and a battery positive to alt cable to a 0/1 gauge cable.
