Onboard air, bigger alternator?

So I picked up an onboard air system for my 4.0 TJ (2005). It's a dual compressor setup and draws 60 amps. Will I need a larger alternator? And if so, any links to the suggested upgrade?

no sir, it'll draw that power from the battery and the alternator will charge the battery as normal.

we run winches that can pull over 400 amps with the OEM alternator
