I think we need to make a sticky about Optima batteries and the user comments about them - the Cliff's Notes version:
They're overpriced, Poor quality, and highly overrated. The Side terminals may work for extras like lighting (within reason), mild stereo setups, and a great power source for that bunch of switches to run all those relays for the aux lights, OBA, headlight upgrades, etc...
If you want a good winch battery, read that link Lucdog posted. The Short version:
A good Heavy Duty lead-acid flooded battery rated for commercial or heavy farm use. For the best set-up, 2 batteries isolated until needed..
Oh, and good cables rated for the current, not the cheaper smaller-gauge wiring that you get with the winch.
