Welcome, Bill! I merged your two threads together to keep the discussion in one place.
Unfortunately there's no good way to make that winch work as is. It's possible to install dual batteries in your Scrambler. They can be kept charged by your stock alternator by connecting them in parallel + to +, - to -. Then, to run your winch you would disconnect them and reconnect them in series, as you have to test the winch. But then the batteries wouldn't get any charge while winching, so you couldn't use them very long. Or you could install another alternator just to charge the second battery. Some military vehicles are set up that way, with a 24-volt starter but everything else runs on 12 volt.
But your best bet is probably to find a 12 volt motor that will fit the winch. It looks somewhat like a Ramsey. Is there a manufacturer's name plate? Contact them and see if they make a 12-volt version.
