Default big 3 stock alt question? help is appreciated

i have a 1998 isuzu rodeo v6 4x4. i am wanting to do the big three and add an extra batt. i would also like to add ho alt later.

the problem... basically under the hood there is a seperate fuse box and all the wires for the alt run from a plastic wire harness clip to the fuse box and then to the battery. can this be bypassed or what?

i see no way to do the big 3 in 0awg... maybe the big one lol.
not to mention this is the first big 3 install i have done.

i can take some pics soon if it helps.

When you do the big 3, you don't need to replace the stock wiring. You just supplement. So leave the stock wiring alone and add your own.

well i do understand to add to not replace but i was concerned bypassing the fusebox and adding directly from alt to batt.
also i can't add to the wire harness that clips to the alt.

This part confuses me. Like you said throw some pics up. Bypassing the fuse box shouldn't be an issue though.

You don't do anything to the part that clips into the alternator. The wire you upgrade goes from the threaded post (right next to the clip) to the battery + terminal.
