    Right now, i have reverse aux lights, another relay/switch for future hellas, and a 1000 watt pioneer amp BRIDGED to another 250 watt amp. How much can we hook up to our stock batteries before buying another one should be a consideration? I'm looking into putting a Cobra CB radio in... its a 2009 2.7l 4 banger, not sure if any of our batteries are different :p

    The issue isn't the battery, it's the alternators capacity to recharge the battery. One extra set of lights and a CB isn't going to be a problem. The stereo might be when it's combined with the lights. CB really does not draw anything significant.

    You could take the truck to a shop and ask them to measure the maximum output of the alternator and the max that everything on the truck pulls when it's all turned on. Or you could be less scientific and go ask this question in the audio forum. The biggest question I have is the amplifiers. Someone has done it before, just need them to see your question.

    Im not sure but the factory alternator is only around 60A. You may want to consider upgrading that
