    ya but prob not that long, you can get the 100-180 watt alt from summit or your local alt rebuilders can up the amps coming out just my 2 cents

    Hey wats up, havent seen you here in a while. My stock alt. held up to high beams being on (all four lights on mine) and two KC daylighters, the really high powered ones(I think 150 or 175).

    Not sure what the stock alts put out, but 3 100 watt lights would only pull +/- 25 amps. Not sure what high beams pull either. Depending on what else you have running on it, should be fine. Of course, and as always, please correct me if i'm wrong.lol

    uh-oh

    i run my plow, stereo, highbeams, salt spreader, and flood lights all off of a 78 amp 'nator. and i havent had a single problem, i got a real big battery and that helps with the plow/winch, but the 'nator holds up fine

    beligerence doesn't justify intelligence.
