    Has anyone ever installed a dual alternator setup on a K-5?? Just wondering. If so, how much of a pain in the arse is it to install??

    It's more of a pain than you want to tackle. It's easier (and cheaper) to get a high output alternator and run a dual battery setup. But out of curiosity...what's it for?

    Nothing in particular. I was just wondering if it was possible. Thanks for the info.

    Go for it! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif It's also a PITA to install a lift! It's also a PITA to install bigger tires!! It's also a PITA to do an engine swap to a Big Block!!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    The point!?! How much of a PITA is relevant. I just can't understand people on this board discouraging others from trying different mods! Why is it so bad if someone can show you how to hook up 200amps using cheap parts that you may even have lying around??

    Oh well; to each his own but I say go for it! I'm going to be running a dual alt set-up when my Blazer gets finished! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Good Luck
