the 2009 Ram has the
160 amp alternator, i believe it is made by Bosch
& 625 amp maintenance free battery, ( newer Rams use a 700 CCA battery )

personally i go to an Auto Electric Shop to have the electrical system checked out
the shop that i use also rebuilds Alternators, Generators, Starters, etc.
they can also boost the AMPs if needed

i have been fighting a chirping belt sound for a while now and i went to the dealer one day last week. they recommended a new alternator. they said it sounded like hell. lol so i have been trying to find ones a little cheaper than the mopar ones. but looks like mopar is the only way to go.
