A lot to unpack here.
I suggest scrolling through the posts on this topic. It's been gone over many times.
1) You may never even use your winch.
2) Radios use wattage transmitting.
3) Lights are on at night.
4) You didn't mention the radiator fan?

Since you asked -
I have (2) pillar lights. (3) baja design lights. PCI radio and intercom. (2) radiator fans. Magellan GPS. Lighted whip.
Running on (1) battery and stock stator.
Never had a problem.

I have:
1. Winch
2. 2 way radio
3. Intercom
4. 2 back up lights
5. Leave my iPad mini plugged in for charging off a USB
6. Heated seats (best $40 ever, man I'm getting old)

All on the stock stator and battery and have not had a problem.

Stock stator puts out 45amps at 4500rpms, so add all your accessories up and see what you can run at the same time .

I have a 42 inch light bar on the roof of my car, Three pod lights on the front bumper, one pod light in the rear for an amber light, race radio with an inter com. I ran all of that along with the factory lights on and did not have any issues at all during my last race. My car was also running with the radiator fan on the entire time being that it was about 105 degrees out. I am planning on installing a Parker pumper soon so I may be adding a second battery and an alternator before too long.

Looks like I am ok to add 2 cube led lights on my 2020 XTR then! I also want to add a cheap all in one radio on the cage so I can listen to normal volume tunes while relaxing a bit. If that is ok? I will link to the sound bar I want to use

I have rugged 60w radio, 12” light bar, two pod lights, winch, gps, rear view camera, interior lights. I added a fuse box and auxillary battery under drivers seat that i hooked all accessories to, if second battery were to fail is isolated from primary battery.

I think battery and charging system needs are dependent on how much night driving you are planning on doing. That's
the only time of constant high current demand.

Look at other types of Air systems the parker pumper for 2 draws a lot of Amps for air output. This is what I’m running and if I had to do it again I would look for a different air pump motor.
