    We did this once on a dual battery system. Each alternator fed each battery and they were completely isolated. We fabbed up the brackets and mounted the second alternator strait above the water pump. When it was all said and done, it wasnt worth the effort.

    Will going to do the same setup that SANDMAN did,but dont see why he think it not worth the effort.
    I've got to many off-road light that suck the s%?t out the battery,and too broke to buy the 200 amp alt.

    that why i will be going to 2 alt + 2 bat..
