The single alt. is 145 amp.The duals are 105 amps each.What was the output of the altenators both single and duel? They had them some years ago for emergency vehicles and such. If you are running a highter load then it could be for you. Wondering when they will have AC power for high power loads and DC for low power loads??? It would be better then highter voltage DC for most things.
You can add another alternator later, but the factory option is a lot less expensive. It's also less expensive to upgrade one or both 105amp alternators (if you need to) than adding a second alternator to the standard 145amp single alt.Is it somthing I need to look in to adding to my truck or is this a factory install only?
Unless you have a whole bunch of other 12v accessories in the truck, you really won't need the duals. As long as you have the plow prep package w/the 145amp alt., you'll be all set. What kind of plow?Wish i got mine. Will need them next winter. Plow relays drain voltage down to 9volts when in constant use. Dual altenators def. a must for plowing.
Really, you had trouble with the single 145 and your plow? I have the 145 on my truck with a Fisher blade on there and I just got back from a long day/night of plowing with no trouble at all. The voltage meter would drop a little bit when using the plow a lot, but it wasn't an issue at all. As soon as I let of the joystick, it went right back up.i had the 145 amp with my western plow and that baby still dropped like a rock voltage wise. I switched to dual 105's and my guage bearly moves when i go plow up. I put the 145 on my gasser for a little help there. But my diesel has the duals and it also helps cuz i like lights and stereo's and air horns n such.
Short answer is no. The D'Max has a spot for the second alt. all you need is an alt, addon bracket, belt etc. The gassers don't have that spot set aside for the duals, aftermarket may have something though.Thanks for the info, but you didn't really answer my question. Can dual alternators be put on the gasser or are the belts and such different?
