    I just had a 8' Western Ultramount installed on my '96 F250. Should I upgrade the alternator or add another battery?

    I would, those Pumps draw alot of amps. Most new trucks now come with a plow prep option, a couple of the bigger items are the Dual Battery setup as well as a higher output Alternator, (generally 145 Amps instead of 100).
