Question batterys, how many is too many??

ok heres the deal. i want to add my lights and winch (a smittybuilt 8k) but am afraid if it being too much strain on the battery. if i add another in parallel, will it squash my fears, or am i better off upgrading the generator. to be clear, i already have the battery from an old swap (still has a charge) and the 4 guage jumper cables that i can modify with new battery clamps and not aligator clamps. any thoughts. the current generator is the stock for a '84 sj413.

With all the offroad lights and winch, I'd get a GM 100amp Alt.
Two batteries would be cool also, I think you could run the winch and lights off one, and the vehicle on the other..
