Hey, I purchased a new winch and will likely install it in the next few days. I was planning on purchasing a better batter and was thinking about getting one with top posts and side terminals, then use the side terminals to wire the winch. Would this be possible, or a good idea?

Its a good idea. That way you can run each item to each post. (Truck leads, and winch leads) make sure you get a new clamp with threaded posts for the nuts to screw onto for the winch cable. You probably don't have a crimper to crimp a battery clamp to the winch cable.

Ran a red top dual post Optima on my last truck, my winch attached to the side posts, that's actually where the 4wd shop that installed everything connected them too. Ran it that way for 10 yrs, probably winched a dozen times without problem.
