    You may have to upgrade the battery wiring to get the full benefit of the high output alternator.

    I'll second the above. I put in the DC power 180 amp alt and zero gauge wiring last year and just bought two new Costco interstate batts this week. Plenty of power while plowing and the starter spins very fast.
