Custom alternator question.

anyone running an alternator??? I have one and it went bad.... Are you guys running it straight to the battery although there is a stator hooked up to???? No diodes or isolators of any sorts? Are you guys all running a 2nd battery on another circuit so you don't even combine electricals??? I don't want to mess up my stock stator is all.......

One of my rhinos run an alt. And it runs a 2nd batt just for lights and stereo only stock stater runs stock batt. And that is for dash and starting and stock head lights only

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE FASTER

Thats how mine was, but I'm trying to eliminate having the weight of another battery onboard. I think the stocker is fine for me, and I just have 7 HID lights (5 on top, and 2 stock replacement). I took sounds out too.... More of a race rhino. Ready to be hosed down at any time.... I'm just hoping I'm not messing anything up by doing this......

Get a smaller batt. And just run lights off it biggjim runs all his lights with no alt. I think you should bealbul to do that and then remove the alt. Altogether
