A lot of people ask about high output alternator options. So here's a chart with a few manufacturers listed below. If you find more, please reply so they can be added. This post is of course geared towards Dodge trucks but these manufacturers generally make alternators for anything. Simply go to their website and search. **NOTE: Always look into upgrading your batteries and cables first! If you have a mostly stock truck, you'll benefit from an alternator upgrade, but not as much as those that have big stereos, winches, camp trailers, excessive lighting, radio equipment etc...
Damn was getting ready to do the WT ground mod and noticed the upper mount tab is broken on my Alternator. It's a bosch. Are the bosch and denso alternators interchangeable? I've been shopping around for a replacement but seems to be some confusion about the correct alternator, depending on the eighth digit of the vin. ( in my case it's "C") Advance auto has the actual bosch alternator (based on the alternator part#) but the listing says it's for trucks with a vin: 7 https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/bosch-premium-100-remanufactured-alternator-al6400x/20851271-P?na
Here's my tale of woe. '99 3500 5.9 Cummins A/T--Started out with the the torque converter lock/unlock issue, found the cure purely by accident (pulled the alternator charge line which was lying directly on the alternator away from the alternator, and problem went away for a couple weeks until the line returned to its original position--ah ha!!!). Traced the charge line, and ended up basically doing the W-T Ground Mod, things ran perfectly for about 4 years. I could not believe that crazy ground splice on the port side of the motor--engineer must have been hitting the sauce on that one. Wi
