install a diesel alternator. size them up at the parts counter. and upgrade your charging wires, from 4awg to 2/ or 0awg wire. upgrade the direct short fuse right in the primary fuse box under the hood. i run two batteries. its possible in a gasser!

Two batteries and it still stalls the truck? How do you have them installed? parallel, battery isolator? Are you sure the one you have now is charging? You may want to get a amp probe and see what kind of amps the plow motor is pulling. Might be something wrong with it. A larger output alt will help keep the batteries charged if that is your issue.
