Need more juice
Ok here it goes. The stock fuse that is between the battery and alt broke on me. No prob, so I replace with a section of 8 gauge wire to find it actually takes a detour before going to the alt. it runs into a cluster of wires that go into the cab. Today my winch (Warn M8000) dosen't have enough juice to pull out another vehicle and when I try to use it my tachometer needle jumps like crazy. What the heck is going on? Battery to small (Diehard) or do I need a G.M. alt. upgrade? Also, if i need a alt. upgrade would I actually be getting the full benefit seeing how the juice from the alt has to run through such small wires before reaching the battery? Help me guys !!!
