After a lot of research, I bought a 200a from alternatorparts.com and highly recommend them.

I didn't upgrade any of my ground wires, but I did add another cable between the batteries and upgraded the wire from my alt to my passenger side battery. I made my own and bought everything from NAPA.

Probably coming up on 2 years now, and I have definitely put it through its paces.
