Can I replace the standard battery with a small automotive battery?
I am having some concerns with operating a winch.
Change out the battery terminals, crate larger area of course. Will the electrical system handle it ?

Thanks !

Let me know what battery you go to. I'm having the same problem. The battery will crank the Mule, but if the winch is used under a load it will draw the battery down quick. Without a backup to start the Mule it presents a big problem.

I modify and swap to the full sized red top Optima batteries. The charging system will handle the Optima just fine.

Keep in mind that if you put a maintenance charger on an Optima, it must not exceed 13.8 volts for an extended period or it will ruin the battery. BatteryMinder makes a special charger with limited voltage output for Optima batteries, and it also works great on other batteries.
