    I'd check the wiring diagram to make sure that there is not an upgraded harness when the higher-output alternator is installed.

    From some more digging, Toyota Nation, etc. Seems the only difference is price. Seems a few folks have made the switch, and they made no mention of different wiring, or the like.

    I thought all Tacomas with the TRD offroad or sport packages had the higher amperage alternator.
