Go big on the alternator. Big as you can.
WERD! Alternators are items that you need to spend a little money on! Anybody can crank an alternator output up but heat will kill it quickly. True upgraded alternators are ported with greatly improved airflow and high quality heat sinks. To combine the bats use a high quality solonoid or one of the commercially available combiners, avoid isolators! Isos work good in the family camper to charge the accessory batt but the high amp loads and rapid multi use that is associated with 4 wheeling is way beyond what an isolator can handle.
