96 6.5L Dual alt AND AD244 upgrade

Ok so I have read of people doing the dual alt upgrade and it seems the bracket is hard to find, but i couldnt find a part no, and any links i did find in threads here and elsewhere were dead due to old age anyway,

I am putting this 93 6.5L into my 96K3500 once i swap the IP and fuel lines over, and do the 99.5 waterpump/clutch/fan upgrade, and thats all i can really afford right away, that and ill pull the oil pan and take pics and put a new gasket on for preventative maintenance.


I will at the very least switch to an AD244 alternator I was looking at the ones for 00-02 5.3l,6.0, 8.1L applications, seem to all bring up the same part # but then i came across 2 threads somewhere that said the 01 dmax alternator is plug and play except needing a 1" larger belt, and t.he tach would be correct


I already know that the factory alternator was rated for 31~A at idle, and the AD244 is good for 83-90A at idle.

I was thinking if i could pull it off, 2 AD244's would give me 150A (being conservative) at idle, and 280A at highway or 2000rpm, thats way more than enough for my needs and i have also learned over the years if you can keep your demand on a power supply say under 50-60% then it will last much longer because less heat and stress on it.

My goal is to be able to idle(or high idle) the truck and run any stuff in our camper if its cloudy out or raining, without having to either buy a noisey generator or spend ridiculous amounts of money for a quiet generator. I already have a pure sine wave and modified sine wave inverters and cabling so I want to make use of what i already have

As I linked in the threads previously linked in this thread

The ACDelco 335-1092 Professional Alternator is a plug & play AD244 upgrade.

I'm running two
I got my bracket from a member here who made some years ago but no longer does because of such small demand.

Be prepared to forever lose some fuel economy if you decide to go duals...


I thought Napa had a 250amp but can't seem to find it.
There is this 200amp though: NAPA New Electrical
PART #
NNE 1N4807HO

Usually anything in this range of output is going to be a powermaster (or aftermarket equivelant), which are great and all, but lack anykind of long term warranty. This Napa unit falls under same warranty the rest of their's gets: lifetime
