    I'm thinking of running 6 lights, for a combined 410 Watts. This means they'll draw ~34.2 amps. Think I'll have any issue with this on a stock alternator?

    What else draws a lot of amps? These lights will only be used off-road, so no need for turn signals. Stock headlights/taillights/interior lights don't draw much power, do they (<2 amps?)?

    Anyone have any idea how much stock radio or AC/heater pull?

    Thanks guys :)
