    Do I need an alternator setup for the additional battery? I was reading about the stator's amp and storage ability and I don't want to get caught draining off the main battery.

    Just make sure the bare minimum you get the battery isolator. It will allow your electronics to draw off the secondary battery and always make sure the primary one is charged first. You could still overheat your stator or voltage regulator if you are basically always under heavy load. Like anything, the more load and the longer duration, the faster it degrades.

    Obviously you won't be running both winches at the same time. And you should be smart enough to turn the stereo down/off before having to winch to boot (as normally you are at idle when winching). So biggest draw would be a huge stereo with bad (aka inefficient or grossly overpowered) amps.

    My buddy with a 2016 YXZ, runs two light bars (front/back) a winch, GPS, charges his iPhone, backup camera, a complete Rugged Radio intercom and car to car system -- one battery and no issues.
