    My Tacoma has the towing package and that includes a 130 amp alternator, so I believe that same alternator will bolt up to your V6
    or a good auto electric shop can modify your existing alternator.
    Edit: I just read your Tacoma is the 4 cyl, my mistake, I don't think the V6 alt will work in the 4 cyl
    May I ask,,,WHY do you need a "High Output Alternator"? you hooking up a big amp to your sound system?

    I forgot I had a "heavy duty" battery and 130 amp alternator. What is a heavy duty battery? more ccas, deep cycle?

    Anywho, How many spare watts/amps does that give us. I figured it out on my motorcycle, but that has like 2 circuits.
    Truck..... eesh. Can't imagine adding up maximum draw there. 130a*12v= 1560watts
    or 13.1*130=1703. Lotsawatts

    I get to about the backup lights and run out of systems I know.

    Weird cause I'm looking to put a bigger alternator on myself. My goal is to off-set the electrical load from my flexlite fan. My buddy and I have been bouncing around the idea, and it seems to end at mounting.
