    Can somebody point me towards some specs that show the actual difference between the standard alternator and the one that comes with the TRD package?

    There isn't a difference with TRD.

    There is a difference with the tow package.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll see if I can verify the spec on the base alternator.

    I guess it's different across the border. In Canada we have three options: Base, SR5 power package, or TRD. The only one that comes with the upgraded alternator is the TRD package.

    I read that the stock was 112 amp. cant remember where I found that, though. :confused:
    upon further searching, 80 amp IS listed as stock, no tow package. that kinda sucks. :-(

    I just did a general internet search. I found many sites that all gave the same 80 amp rating. I then called a couple of friends and they did the same. Problem though. I cant find out HOW the Toyota alt. is rated. If its at idle, 2000 rpm, peak, etc. Being as its only 80 amp, I can only assume its at idle, as most other alternators are rated much higher at 2000 rpm.
