High output lighting

Running six hella lights 2x 1000 4 x 500. Don't feel they are as bright as could be. Am I overtaxing the alternator or battery. any suggestions for alternator upgrade I know they make a 200 amp alternator or would that be overkill. all suggestions welcome

Could someone suggest where the weak link is. Is it the battery or the alternator?

Just wondering this, as I can upgrade either battery or alternator. Which will give me more bang for my buck.

Hii's Tacoma Gallery
I'd strongly suggest converting them all to HID. More light output and less strain on your battery/ alternator

Convert them to HID if you can, but the big thing is to swap your alternator. What what bulbs are running in the lights, standard 55w?
