What much amperage does the stock alternator put out?

I am running 6 rock lights, 4 large KC lights and a CD stereo with a 200 Watt amp and 2 8" sub woofers, CB radio, etc... <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

When I have everthing turned on at the same time the stereo cuts out. <IMG SRC="smilies/eyemouth.gif" border="0">

What is the easiest alternator to install into a relatively stock 22R. I would rather not have to fab up any brackets

Thanks,

I think? they are 80 amp stock. I plan on taking mine to a local shop and have it rebuilt and have the amp's upped to 130-140 or so since I just got a winch.

Seams like they're more in the 45-60 amp range, at least that's what's listed as stock replacement.

Premier Power Welder is a good fit for 22R, the brackets are supposed to need a little grinding to fit the alternator. I have one on my 22RE, and it was a bit more work, but I've seen a 22R instalaltion and the guy said it was fairly esy.

I have a 130+ amp marine GM single wire alternator in mine. I had no need for the smog pump so I used the exsisting brackets and it was a direct bolt on.

OUCH ! ! !

I just got off the phone w/ the guys at www.wranglernw.com . These are the prices that they gave me.

Toyota 85 Nippondenso alternator w/ bracket:
$550 for 140 amp rated (120A hot and 90A idle)
$720 for 175 amp rated (160A hot)
They also have a 110 amp but I didn't ask about a price. He says it is direct bolt in.

Does anyone know of any cheaper options???

Someone was mentioning this to me a while ago about being able to re-do a stock Alt, any idea what it would cost?

I had a delco-remy in the nineties, for a meager sum, think it was a little over a c-note, but that was then, and this is now. He brought it from a 60a to a 100a, change of diodes was all that was necessary if i member correctly. Seems easy enough, how come us wrenchers dont know how to do it?
Has anyone done it on thier own?

My friend told me around $80-90 bucks with a lifetime warranty.

I've been running a 90 amp from No Warranties Or Returns (NWOR) which is a rewound stock toyota. Like everything from NWOR it's just someone elses rebadged product. The truck originally had a non OEM alternator that they stuck me with the core charge for. Stock output I believe to be 60 amps for my 82.

So if I replace the alternator do I have to replace the regulator? Will a 140amp alt. work fine with the stock regulator?

thanks,,,

Thanks for the info. What is that black box with red that is located on the fender well on the drivers side then? I thought it said regulator on it?

My '85 alternator didn't have that box, maybe it was different in the earlier trucks.
