Winch behind the stock bumper

Hi, i have a 2013 e-250 with the 5,4 engine, can i fit a winch behind the stock bumper?, i would build my own custom mount, i'm thinking about the Smittybilt X2O 12000lb do you guys think it would fit?

i would also like to install a second battery with an insulator, could someone recommend one? since winches need so much power (i think i have the 120 or 155 amp alternator) is there a way to manually connect the twin battery's plus the alternator to feed the winch? my dad had a van with dual batterys and the insulator had a switch to jump start the car battery with the second battery.

Francisco: Do a search here for for the following words: isolator, separator, blue sea, surepower, acr, 7622.....

there are lots of threads about isolators and separators

They are different; I would consider a blue Sea Separator

Sure Power makes isolators and separators as well....

Separators are available as one-way or bidirectional as is handy if you have solar and want to charge the starting battery as well as the house/coach battery.
