Default How much is too much?

How many electrical add-ons would be tooo much for the stock system. Right now all I have is a Hi/Lo HID kit that has a relay to the battery, but In the end I would like to have:

2 Hella 500FF with 100w bulbs
2 55w 3" yellow fogs
E-fan
Possibly small fan on the A/C Condenser (keep the A/C cold at long lights in summer)
Remote Tranny Cooler
Rear Light Bar
2 10" Subs, new speaker, and 1000 watt amp
A few extra random guages

MAYBE Train horn.

Is this a bit much?? haha or could a stock alternator and battery handle it.

As long as everything is wired/fused/relay-ed properly AND you don't have everything on at the same time, you should be fine.

It won't hurt if you upgrade the alternator/wiring/battery though.
I've got a 200a alternator, 1/0ga wiring & a larger battery (1000/850cca) and I've got power to play with.
