Battery Suggestion?

Iím in need of a new battery for my Ď14 Limited. Itís stock right now but I plan to add a small front light bar, couple lights to the rear for camp use, and possibly some rock lights within the next year.

Since I need a new battery anyway I was planning to go ahead and get one with these in mind. Would I benefit from a larger battery or should I just get an Interstate and call it a day?

All of those lighting loads are powered by the alternator when the car is running, the battery is just there to start the car.

Even running the small lights when the engine is off is fine as long as its not for really long extended periods of time.

Any regular sized battery is fine... Interstate from Costso or an EverrStart Maxx from Walmart and both really good regular starter batteries.
