Default Re: lights dim above 3k RPM

well, i think my truck decided to clue me in on what was wrong yesterday, i went up to hang out with some friends a couple of miles up the road, pulling the last hill the truck downshifted and reved up to about 4,200 RPM, this time the little battery light came on and never went off, and the volt guage dipped down below the 1/4 mark to low.... so im fairly sure my alternator crapped out.

got the truck home no problem, gonna call around and see what kinda price i can get on an alternator. damn glad i got my backup car!

oh, and thanks for the help everyone!
