winch wiring up and new battery questions
i've recently gotten a new Smittybilt XRC10 10k winch from 4WP's. i also picked up the SB power cables as quick conenct power cables. the winch is mounted in a SB hitch cradle. i have not ran the power cables to the battery yet (havent had time), but i want to get a new, stronger battery. i also plan to do a battery connecter mod, by converting to heavier duty, and easier to clean, MilSpec battery terminals. these can be picked up thru Napa stores and other stores online.
my main question, is about which battery to get. my idea is a good sized batter with plenty of cranking amps, like an Optima. but red, yellow, or blue top? deep cycle or normal? the truck is a DD and is not expected to use the winch alot. only thing the battery would have to worry about, besides regular truck duty, is LED lights on the roof, and 4 KC DL's (130w each) on the bullbar.
