My Batteries are dying and need to be replaced shortly
As my future plans might involve putting a winch on the front, I am thinking of using this opportunity to up spec the batteries in preparation. What would you chaps with winches recommend? should I stick with standard Varta type and have a separate winching bat or should I put a nice pair of fancy ones in?
Thanks Chaps

I would just put good quality standard size / composition batteries in again Julian unless you're going to do some challenge events when you get your winch. The winch won't work for long anyway, it's electric :roll:

74 Ah sounds a bit small. Particularly if you think of winching. 2x 100 Ah is the standard and they normally have 800 to 900 CCA.
