Default Briggs Charging System Mod?

I have your standard Briggs Dual Circuit alternator on the MULE. Two outputs off the alternator. One remains AC for lighting, one gets clipped to DC with a diode for charging. What if-

I were to ditch the diode, and run both circuits through the inputs of a bridge rectifier? Would I not then double my DC current availability? Are the two circuits in phase with each other, and if not, will it create a problem? Are there any other foreseeable issues with the idea? Thanks!
