Deep Cycle Battery

What are some good deep cycle batteries that can run the jeep while wheeling, any lights, winch, and a 800 watt sterio but not suck it up?

^^^^That's what we run in both our jeeps. Have not drained it yet. I don't run the winch unless the motor is running, but do use the lights without the motor running when i need to light up camp for dinner time after dark LOL

I run 6 PIAAs on the front

A true deep cycle battery like you'd buy for a boat is not a good choice for a Jeep, they are not designed for the daily starting duties and don't have the characteristics needed.

I agree on the Diehard Platinum recommendation for a Jeep and winch, it's about the best battery for the $$$ that I am aware of.

I have two Optima YT and Im gappy with them. One for starting and one for the winch and offroad ligths.
I have a charging relay from a boat shop. By pressing one button I can use both batterys at the same time if I need more power for the winch or if one battery is empty.
