Lights??

So im looking to put some more lights around the exterior of my truck im starting out with some smaller lights but eventually when i save up enough money i want to get a light rack for my bumper and for my roof. But for now i wanted to know if i should invest in a higher rated alternator since im already running a sound system and some hids. and soon to put on a few lights. What is everyones opinion so i dont kill my batteries.

ill tell you now that running HID's your SAVING amperage. so there is actually more to give now. but. pending on how many lights you actually want to run i dont think youll have any problems with just an extra few lights on a light bar. especially if you HID convert them all
