/\ what he said.

The only way to get your hands dirty is to go in and tackle it...esp if you don't want to read the threads with all the info on it. Read up, ask questions, hands dirty, then ask more questions if problems arise.

There are literally threads for this install step by step

I have a 92 bronco w/ a 302 and I did the 3G swap and I got the 160 amp and that was more than enough juice since I only have a few add ons. It was fairly easy to install too! You just need to go on fireguys page and read up on it!

It isn't really hard, believe me. Make sure you try to score a 175 amp mega-fuse out of a late 90's F150 if you see one. It has the wires all connected to the the fuse from the alt for charging. I just grabbed it and said it was part of the charging harness, which it is :)

Placed a recent order online from your website. Order # 3090. I made my order based on the info i saw you posted, since i didnt get a response from an email i sent via you website's contact us email page or my call....that was around a week ago.

This is for an 1992-96 5.0L or 5.8L
Side Mount 160Amp 3G
and these accessories
2-1/4in - 6-rib Serp Pulley
Alternator Charge Cable Kit
I have a 92 5.8 351w. Looking at the alternator in my truck it doesn't look like a side mount.

Here is a pic of the alternator I have in there now.

To me that looks like the same one in my 90 FSB XLT. I did mine with this one: http://www.rjminjectiontech.com/collections/alternators/products/alt-7778.

I also suggest getting the charge cable kit and the new pully. Note, you will need to cut away a piece of the mounting braket because hte 3G is wider then the 2G, the instructions are posted in an earliar response above.
