will this winch pull up 950 up a boat trailer about 3, and will it have enough electtric wire to reach up to my truck batteryor my cigarette plug

The Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch, # 1120210, has accessories more suited for ATVs, and the wiring included may not be long enough to reach the battery, let alone the cigarette lighter if mounted in the front. If mounted in the back it would really be a stretch. It does have a single line capacity of 2,000 pounds, so pulling a 950 pound boat should not be a problem.
The matching winch for a vehicle is the Superwinch LT2000 Electric Utility Winch, # 1220210. It is essentially the same winch just with different accessories. I have included a link to the installation details for this winch below.
For mounting at the rear of the vehicle, I recommend adding Winch Trailer Wiring Kit, # SW1520, because your vehicle wiring is not rated to use for this application. The winch will need to be hardwired to the vehicle battery or to a separate battery to avoid damage to your vehicles wiring. This kit includes the wiring and connectors needed to install the winch on a trailer of rear of a vehicle. With this wiring kit, you really could use either winch.
