Just keep in mind that the alternator on the 4Runner runs at max 130A (Cant remember what RPM thats achieved at) and to subtract that from your power draw then you can calculate the run time before discharging the battery more than 25-30% and let it recharge via the alternator.
Thanks for your help. I purchased the Northstar 24F from the group buy. I also purchased the voltage booster from ARCLedLights just to be safe. I bought a voltage reader off Amazon that plugs into the cigarette lighter to monitor voltage as well.

Cool! Good call on the voltage booster! after that was posted I looked into it as well and will probably get one too. Voltage reader is a good idea, I would check periodically still with a meter at the battery just to see what the avg difference is cause I've heard of people getting different readings at the battery than what was being shown on the cigarette lighter, again, purely from what I've read on the forum, never actually tested it myself.

Yea, I plan on doing a baseline test with an actual multi meter and comparing it to the cigarette lighter.

Appreciate the pics, lemme know what extended leads you find lol since I assume you need some ASAP.

Any issues with the piping on the left the tray sits slightly below?

I havent had any with it, I just lifted up on it and the tray flexed back out. as for the leads I'm probably going to go ahead and do a Big 3 upgrade (cost~$60) with the military style leads (cost~$20) which should help the overall power system.

I will eventually be installing a PowerBastards high output alternator to solve voltage issues but in the meantime I found a $30 on-board charger on Amazon (Link) that I can just plug in when I get home every day. if you want you can uprade to this which also has the desulfation feature.

The slee extensions just posted above work really well too for about $50

Thank god for Amazon Prime lol.

In all reality I can keep using the stock battery for now since I don't have the winch installed yet, but when that happens next month I am not going to have a choice haha need to sell some stuff so I can go ahead and get the alternator
