    When I had the small 5 amps and only one PC, to get it to turn on, I had to rev the engine really high. So imagine when I have 7 PC units, and bigger amps. Even if the power is over kill, id rather have extra power then not enough. Also, if I can finish this upgrade, it will benefit other Durango, Dakota owners that have the same 4.7 engine that seems to be so hard to get mods for. To my knowledge, no one has done a dual alternator setup on the 4.7, because of its picky ECU controller.
