    Go to Napa and get the 155 HO alternator and big charging kit. Plug is the same as your current truck, swaps in pretty easy. Put one in 2 years ago, made a big difference. Also, pull the six bolts holding the upper fan shroud. Makes the job much easier.

    Don't screw around with Autozone on this, they won't have a clue.

    It was a direct swap. Same brackets, plugs, belt.
