    Hey all just wondering if anyone on here's done a gm alt swap on a 01 or similar Tacoma. Right now I'm looking at getting I believe it was a excessive amperage 350 amp alt :) from a buddy that was going to fit his 90 blazer. Not sure if I'm going to run it in place of the stock alt yet or if I'm going to fab up a dual alt bracket. Also is anyone running a dual alt setup on their Tacoma now?

    What do you plan on running that would require 350 AMPS? I would suggest upgrading some wires if you go that route.

    Wow, this would be the first that I know of. One thing to note is the voltage reg is part of the alternator on the taco. I don't know if the GM alt has an integrated unit. Go for it.

    This one does have a voltage reg on it but it's external so you can udjust the voltage coming from the alt. This one I think is from 13.2 volts up to 32 or something stupid like that but I'm not sure what the truck can take stock (ive heard around 14.8)that's why I was thinking of running a duel alt this way I can charge my system batteries at whatever I want and not have to worry about killing the truck
