Installing a high output alternator with large 2 gauge wires to transfer the Amps to the battery. This was a have to install with all the upgrades we did to the jeep like the 1800 watt stereo, 9,500 lbs winch, high powered lights, and AC the stock alternator just couldn't keep up. In fact, a couple of times the load was so great the jeep stalled, not really something you want to happen. The upgraded alternator was needed, not only will it make the battery life longer, it will also keep you on the road instead of looking for a jump.

What You Need To Install A High Amp Alternator

The install of an alternator is not hard, but there are a few tools you will need that you may not have. The only thing the most will need is a lug crimping tool and some heavy cable cutters. The heavy gauge cable is hard to cut and you aren't going to get the cheap wire crimper to crimp the terminal lugs. When you're ready to jump in most of the other tools are pretty standard, unless you have one of those fancy cars, you may be standing on your head trying to get to things.

Here is the list of all the tools we used to install our 120 Amp alternator. May have gone a little big on the cable size, but we plan to replace the 4 gauge wire running to our amps.

Big Car Battery Cables Cheap

Now doing this project we know you want to save a little money, heavy-gauge cable ain't cheap or is it. What we have found if you can almost spend half the money buying the gauge wire you need in the form of jumper camps. Don't make sense, but jumper cable companies work really hard to keep their product cheap, they buy in bulk and you can reap the reward
