yea I find my self looking at the miller and liquid iron builds a lot. their builds make sense to me. ibex also has similar build design. only thing I don't like about the ibex is the roof line looks way to tall. I like the door bar higher so it will make the roof line look lower.

I think mine is 140 amp. GM from 03 Escalade. The nice part about the newer alternators is that they have to run all electric components at idle. (AC, heated seats, power everything...) so they put out well at low rpm.

3g ford alternator is another solid choice. Just Google ford 3g alternator swap.
