Did you run these through a relay?
What is the brand of these lights?
What does the box say for an amp draw per light?


There are many members running four or more lights on the stock stator but most have upgraded to a better battery such as the Optima yellow top. I run an Optima yellow top with the stock stator and I have 18 lights on my car, two lighted whips, a Rugged radio set up, a Lowrance Baja 5 GPS and external antenna with no issues at all. Let us know what kind of lights these are. My 900 lumen led Vision X solos are only .75 amp draw each.

im guessing that you installed aset of halogen lights? if thats true you may get away with dropping the bulbs down to 35w that would be 140w of power being sucked out of the stock stator . if i remember right our cats only have about a 350w so that doesnt leave much power left if you take into account the electrical system and headlights ..... best bet is to run HIDS i ran into the same problem when i first got mine it wouldnt power 5 35w halogens at the same time . so when i changed cages i upgraded to HIDS . i also installed UTVINCS alternator kit on my XTZ . now thats the only way to go ! 90 amps is more than enough to run all 5 hids , headlights 1200w stereo and the 55w back up/ icechest light with power to spare! and it will maintain 14.3 v all night long !

I run 2 batteries. A stock starting battery and a "house' battery. I use a battery switch to switch between the two or use both when running and want to charge the house battery.

I run 2 batteries also. An Optima blue top under the hood that powers all my lights and accessories and its hooked into the stock battery with an isolator. Doing it that way your stock battery will get charged first and when its fully charged the isolator switches to charge the aux battery. That way you will never drain the main battery. I run 5 6" hid's, an intercom system, and a lighted flag and I've never had any issues with it.
