What are the 3 cables on positive battery post

Can anyone tell me why my 2014 JK has 3 cables coming off the positive battery cable & where they go? I want to add a small extra fuse box to use for such things as a CB radio & 2 meter radio & possibly some LED lights & who knows what else will come along in the future that I will want to hook up.
I'm not sure which if the 3 terminal would be best to use to connect my new small extra fuse box or if it makes any difference since all 3 are terminals are connected to the positive battery cable.

My battery only had 2 things on the 3 termnal stuff. So I hooked up my winch to the extra one. Of course I'm 2013 also.

I was actually wondering what the wires were for as well.. i guess i could track them but i never really thought to much about it.. Hook up to either 3, but the best one will probably be the furthest forward with the smaller wire attached, and would be purely cosmetic.
