    If you want to run the stereo, lights and winch at the same time for sure you need dual batteries. If you are only going to use it for the ocasional stuck then probably not.

    I'd run a second battery, prolly a large Deep cycle. Isolate the two batteries with one of those selectable switch deals. Use the deep cycle for winching...and the other battery for starting and other daily duties.
