Does anyone know what the amp rating of the stock alternator is? Is there enough amperage to power 2 pairs of aux lights? (400 watts total) I know a few of you have 2 pairs of aux lights. Have you had any problems with all of your lights on?

There are two different Alternators. The early production 05's had 110A alt and the later production 05 as well as 06 and 07 have a 130A alt. Some place on here I posted the exact build dates in 05 that they started using the 130A alts.

Being that mine is an 07 it should have the 130 amp'r. 4x100wx8.3a/100w=33.2 amps I guess I'm alright.
