12-06-2009, 10:17 AM
comin back from calgary last night, through white outs and a large blizzard...and my alternator decides to quit about 60 km's from home. Thank god my yellow optima has a long reserve.

Anyways, I figure now is the time to upgrade. I thought I heard somewhere that an alternator from a late 90's V8 Dakota was a bolt in upgrade (Higher amp output) Can anyone confirm this, or give me another option? Thanks
