Which GM Alt to go with?

Helloe fellas, I need some help.
On the petroworks site they have the GM alt and bracket:
"105 Amp Alternator Kit:
Our kit supplies the higher current needed for accessories like winches and auxiliary lighting. We use a quality Delco-Remy alternator the same found on late-model GM trucks. No mods to your wiring are necessary. Includes bracket, vbelt, pigtail cable, bolts, Allen key and high-current charging wire.
ENG3000 $249.95 Shipping wt. 15 lbs."-petrowroks

And the other that I have seen is from Roadless Gear:
"Here's the complete GM Alternator kit! Includes 78 amp GM style alternator (that's over twice the output of a stock Samurai alternator), the alternator bracket, wiring, new fan belt and complete illustrated instructions."-roadless gear.com and this kit runs for $149.00

So guys, whats the big deal here, both of these kits are the sane right? What's up with the $100 difference? Any suggestions on which one is better will help to...thanks for the help.

The higher priced kit costs more because of the high-output alternator. Yes, they do the same things, but if you're running a stereo, CB, lights, and a winch, I would go for the larger kit.

Can never have too much juice.

Re: Which GM Alt to go with?

I believe that other than the amp differences, the Roadless Gear alt is a 10si and the Petroworks alt is a cs series alt. A cheaper way to go is to buy Trail Tough's bracket (app. $25) and then go alt shopping at your nearest auto parts store...... Got mine for $69, a 108 amp 12si alt.....
Keep in mind that there are a lot of cheap rebuilds out there. I'm almost tempted to buy a genuine AC/Delco alt and not worry..........
