Note: Military Alternators in many cases have higher amperage outputs, that are not needed in normal use of the vehicle. A smaller, less expensive Double Alternator is more practical. Our standard is 70 amps at 27.4 volts and 160 amps at 14.2 volts. Total amps available 215. We can build up to 400 amps using heavy duty parts that we stock. With our alternator, a add-on 12 or 24 volt dc Air Conditioning system is possible. No compressor to mount. No Freon lines to run.

* Brushless alternators are slow to start, have less amperage available and much heavier. Expect less power from brushless alternators with hotter air flow through it. Air can be 80-100 f. hotter in competitors, versus our Double Alternator models using the remote air filter kit.

** No core charge!  You can keep old alternator if you are trying to maintain original equipment when you sell vehicle.

Most all Vehicles have engine intake air filters, oil filters, transmission filters, fuel filters, cabin filters, etc. So why not a filter on the electrical systems alternator. We build a single alternator Pad or J mount, with a filter in 12 and 24 volts. Up to 200 amps. Custom Alternators by request. Replace your dual alternators with our single mount double alternator.
