The Big 3, and replace the alternator with at least a 160amp unit. Iraggi alternators might have something for your, car, or Ohio Generator. Also check boat shops, good source for high output ford alternators.

local NAPA, if they do alternator and starter rebuilding on-site, they can set you up as well rewinding your stock alternator with high amperage marine parts.

Definatly going to need the extra battery power for running things like the screens and PS3. If your looking for stuff locally, go with a couple of yellow top optimas. if your looking outside of locally, go with a couple of kinetik HC800's or higher models. they're great 12V battery's meant for car audio/electronics

Alternator, no point in 2 batteries if the alternator you have now can't keep up with 1 battery. I have a Ohio Generator 200amp for a 01 Ford F350 here, not sure if it would work on your vehicle or not. I will try and find out. If you are going for a new alternator there are two ways to go. The purpose build using all new parts and as large a case as possible, or the rebuild using new windings in the same case. The latter usually leaves heating issues, more windings in the same case = more heat = failure sooner. Something for you to consider before you dive on in....

Stinger, Irragi and Ohio all build great alternators, consider all three of these manufacturers.
