It's funny you mention blow through. As that's what I'm leaning towards on my rebuild. Up until a day ago I was bound and determined to do a full wall. But then I started thinking, I do a lot of highway driving, in the winter. One mishap and I've got 1000 lbs of wood and box crashing down on me if it's not secured good enough. So I quickly changed my mind to a half wall. Slightly more safe. Lol. I can understand being hesitant about cutting a truck up, first hole I drilled in mine scared the hell out of me, but now the idea of cutting a blowthrough hole doesn't intimidate me as much.
As far as alt I've got a 300 amp excessive amperage alt, and I'll be running 14 or so Paccar dry cell batteries (don't know the model exactly, got em CHEAP, aka, free). So I'll see how they do, then maybe upgrade later. I would like another alt too, but that would need a custom bracket, which no one makes yet for the 5.0L.
