your alternator doesnt charge as well unless you change the pulley on it, which would explain dimming of lights or poor battery performance. the water pump will need a bigger pulley also to spin it at the same speed it was at so there is less flow involved unless this is addressed. thats about it. this is why when you buy a kit for a car they usually come with all 3 pulleys but i dont know what this one comes with. i am assuming just the crank pulley from the pic and descriptions i have seen.

Man!! I have had the same battery in my Ram since 06 and installed the UD balencer a year ago.. I have ZERO issues with the battery charging... If you put a bigger pully on the water pump would'nt that defeat the purpose!!!

I'm new to modding so bear with me. Alternator performance should only be affected at low rpm situations ie. idling right? When you are driving it shouldn't make a difference? Sound right guys? Same with water pump or so I would think. Is this what you guys think or am I off base?

thats basicaly it. the kits i am familiar with offered these 3 pulleys for that reason. for the trucks i am not sure but i would assume there is going to be some affect given the u/d pulley is normally smaller unless it is exactly the same size as oem. I dont know if it is but maybe someone can enlighten on wether it is the same or smaller.

the people that have had battery/alternator problems are guys with monster stereo problems. I don't remember who but one guy even data logged charging voltage before and after his install and there was no change.

I know the Ram doesn't have the huge aftermarket support like some other vehicles but the few that I've talked to are doing ok. Like everything else I'm sure there are always your "other" cases that a negative story.
