Looking for advice on an Alternator and good dual battery set up?

Ok, I need to replace my alternator. I figure I might as well upgrade to a higher out put model since I have significantly increased the load it is supporting. Any one have advice as to which one I should go with?

Also, I am thinking about adding a dual battery set up. Any input as to who makes a good kit? Obviously, warantee is not an issue as mine is a '07....

Thanks!

I bought the Rugged ridge tray, an Isolator from Cole Herse and had a local parts store make some wires for me. I made a tie down bar using a piece of C-chanel that allowed me to mount my fuse block and the isolator. Saved probably $200 over buying a kit. Only thing I want to change is the J hooks that hold the tie down. They kind of dig into the side of the batteries and that is a bad thing.

Alternator

I'm looking for a high output alternator, myself.

He's a vendor I'm considering:
