Hey all, i was looking at a couple of off road lights and was wondering if I would have any problem running them off the stock alt? There 130watts. And also has anyone mounted off road lights on there lund visor? I was thinking about this and just wondered if anyone has done this before and if so was it quite easy?

Thanks.

I don't see a problem with a couple lights on a stock alternator. I have 2- 6" lights (not sure of the wattage) and they have no effect on the alt.
Don't think mounting them on a visor is a good idea. If you get on a washboard road or come down hard on the front end you might crack the visor. I would stick to a roof rack or brush guard.

I typically use 10 watts to an amp on 12volt vehicles to be safe.
So you're looking at a 13 amps per light.
nto sure what size alt you have. worst alt output is 65amps max :shrug

You'll be fine. But I would not mount them to a visor. They are not strong enough. All it is is thin fiberglass and you could easily rip one out if you caught a branch or something. Not to mention I think the weight of the lights may cause the visor to vibrate or come loose. I have seen it before without anything mounted to it.
