Alternator/Power Inverter ???'s

I have a power inverter I need to install. I need to know if I need to change my alternator? If so, which one do I need?

Here is the inverter...PV3000GFCI - PowerVerter Plus Inverter w/ GFCI Outlets - Industrial-Strength Power for Heavy-Duty Applications

Continuous output capacity (watts) 3000
Peak output capacity (watts) 6000
Output nominal voltage 120V
Output voltage regulation Maintains PWM sine wave output voltage of 115 VAC (+/- 8 VAC)
Output frequency regulation 60 Hz (+/- 3 Hz)
Overload protection Automatic overload protection shuts down inverter system in the event of overloads. Output is protected by 2 built-in 20A circuit breakers (each controlling power to 2 outlets). Inverter and electrical system are further protected via set of 6 40A automotive input fuses.
Outlet quantity / type 4 AC outlets (GFCI protected)

Depends on how you intend to use it. If you're just powering a laptop or the occasional drill/saw then you're fine with the stock one. If you intend to run at or near capacity for a long period of time, then you need to upgrade several things. If you're intent is to install a large battery bank to run the inverter with the truck off, then you would probably want a separate alternator.
