I looking at getting a new alternator, stock can't
power everything I have. I have 8 12 inch LED light
strips, aftermarket​ fog lights mounted on front
bumper, 10 inch LED light bar, 600 watt amp. I plan
on getting a curved light for the roof, new radio and
speakers, and 1200 watt amp in the future, im
wanting to know what size alternator I should
upgrade too.

I don't know what your existing alternator puts out but clearly you need a more powerful one. I think you need to add a battery or two to your truck as well. The extra batteries will take care of high load demands that don't last long like when crank up your stereo. I hope you know old age won't be fun when you are deaf.
