Which Alternator should I get?

So my alternator went out on my early 99 F250. I am looking for something larger than stock. What do y'all suggest?

I do not have an answer, but curious what gets mentioned. I replaced mine last yr, but do not recall what I bought. I know its same output at original though.
I do not recommend lifetime warranty items, they tend to crap out more often. I would rather pay more for a quality part than to replace the part over and over, but everyones experience will be different

Go to orielly's and ask for the alternator off of a 05 f550. you'll need a set of the thick lock washers they have. put them between the alternator and the bracket. It's a 140 amp alternator mounts right up no problems.

Sold 2001 f250 ccsb 4x4 400/400, dual terminators, swamps 80mm bfh, headers, bts and all the usual supporting mods. 715hp fuel only.

sounds like a old style large case ,, DCPower uses them to run cooler so My 06 from them shipped with 3/16 (IIRC) spacers
