Anyone here rocking a heavy duty alternator when running a dual battery or Group 31 battery setup?

Heres another option:

"with vF Tuner for the 3.5L Tacoma you will be able to Modify your Charging Voltage and alternator duty control! A requirement for trucks that use aftermarket batteries where the stock system cannot adequately charge it! All possible through our software."

Kill 2 birds with 1 stone...have a tune for your truck and also change your charging voltage

For mine, it's not a matter of voltage, I have a DC/DC charger with buck-boost functionality. The problem is amperage and heat. I need more of the former without the latter.

By the way, has anyone here ever pulled their stock alternator? Is there a trick to getting that bolt out of the bracket attached to the rear of the alternator under the intake manifold bracket? This whole endeavor is stalled because I can't figure out how to get it out with the space provided.
