<<<<< Likes the optima batteries. I have one in Zyla, and have used many of them over the years. If you have one that went bad fast, it was a defect. I usually get 3-4 years out of them. Plus you can mount them sideways if you want cuz they are a sealed battery. And no battery acid to rot the floor of your v-dub.

if you use switches to run the power make sure they are at least 15amp for IGN and 20amp for each pair of lights. if you go to the 100watt big lights try and use at least 25 amp or larger. I usually run relays with the bigger lights just so it has a direct contact through the relay, plus you can run tiny switches which look cool with LED's(I miss my last baja, lol).

The factory VW light switch is a good switch and cheap to replace. It can retain all the dimmer features and is simple to mount or keep stock.

running two batterys when there is a bigger current draw(loud stereo with small welder running 15inch woofers listening to deep purple)than what the alternator will just take longer to do the same damage on 2 batteries.
you wanna run a bigger amperage alternator. any thing else like extra batteries and caps is just like putting a bandaid on a ripped off leg. it might work for a while but it will eventually leave you for dead who knows where, and when its a baja or offroad vehicle thats a big gamble.

sorry so long but it is very important to do things the right way with these monsters, and for bugs its usually cheap. good luck
