That’s the first thing I did when I hooked them back up. But thanks for the reminder. I can use all the help I can. Truck fired right up and batteries are still good.Make sure all of your battery and ground connections are clean and tight while you are at it.
Went to start my truck today that has been sitting for about three to four days. It started up fine then. Today all it did was click. Jumped it off and battery voltage is only reading 9-10. Drove it around the block and all gauges stopped, ABS light came on, battery light came on and air bag light came on. Radio would not work and wipers slowed waaaaaay down and head lights became very dim.

Thanks for the advice. I did take it to get tested and it was bad.If battery voltage while running is that low the charging system is not happening. Could be simple as a broken belt. If not alt is suspect. When alt fails you should always check for things that could cause the failure such as loose connections or one of you two batteries going out. Alternators do have end of life for no apparent reason sometime. Take it with you when you go for a new one and let them test it.
The higher amperage will not charge your battery faster. Just keep up with higher power usage or demand with lots of add on’s. The charging rate is still regulated.Higher amperage will charge the battery faster and provide more power in the event you're running lots of electronics/accessories.

I’m going to take the 110 A I just put on my truck off and order the 140A. I have a 2003 6.0. The one you posted will fit?May be too late for it, but .......
The motorcraft 140A alternator is part b# 6C3Z-10346-BARM
2005-2007 Ford part # 6C3Z-10346-BBRM - Alternatorparts.autonationfordwhitebearlake.com
I like it above the stock 110 alternator.
