    Got a 04 Sierra 2500HD with alot of electrical accessories just running off factory electrical system all fused.
    What I have installed
    Truckcraft dump insert
    2 PIAA offroad lights on front end
    2 OEM fog lights in air dam
    2 PIAA reverse lights on rear bumper
    400 watt amp and after market stereo
    ECCO reverse beeper

    My question is should I upgrade the electrical system for safety, I only run 1-2 things at a time above, not counting the trailer lights,marker lights ect?

    I bet they can track you from outer space! You will probably want 2 batteries & a good high-amp alternator.

    If your amp draws power away from your lights...add a capacitor to your amp.
