What is the bone stock no power windows-locks, regular radio, no axillary anything current draw on the alternator for an 02 Taco? What is the max current output of a stock 02 3.4 alternator. What amount of current do I have to play with for say off road lights and whatnot basically? DC clamp meters are expensive and I'm lazy.lol

Wow - you're getting creative with the thread titles tonight ... first "struttin yo stuff" and now "current events" :rofl:

It's not much. The rocklights maxed out my alternator big time. Molly and I both had our rebuilt by Boyle Future Tech in California - GREAT work. It was only $118 including return shipping too!

what is your new alts output? Did a little math (scary). Amps=Watts/Volts. Each 55 watt light draws 4.58 amps (that's at 12V, I know it's usually 13-14 when running). Current can add up quick.
