    Battery on my 2010 Toyota Tacoma died. I have a 10,000lb winch. What kind of battery does anyone recommend?

    IMHO, if you are not able to keep your starting battery fully recharged based on your driving habits and winching, you should upgrading your charging system. If you winch a lot and drain your starting battery, then you should consider adding an isolated deep cycle battery for winching, so you can restart your engine. Starting batteries are not designed for deep discharges that can occur with heavy electrical loads and OEM charging systems. For additional information, see Sections 7 and 5 in the Car and Deep Cycle Battery FAQ on www.batteryfaq.org. The November issue of Consumer Reports has ratings on wet Group 24F starting batteries. If you do extreme off-roading (heavy vibration), then a spiral would AGM will last longer than wet starting batteries.
