I found a deal I don't think I can pass up on a Winch. The quandry I have is that it's probably not big enough for my 3500 lb Jeep but since I'm not running a winch now would it be of some use mounted on the Jeepster or would it be better suited for the trailer in my future?

Mount it on the jeep and get a snatch block until you can upgrade to a bigger one. A small winch is better than no winch.

Caveat:
Ramsey winches are slow compared to Warn. You can get an 8000 lb Ramsey or MileMarker from Harbor Freight for $400 or less. The winch won't say RAMSEY on it, but it is identical. I know because I have one from HF and seen a Ramsey up close and in action.

It needs to be a pretty good deal before I'd plop down money for less winch than I know I might need someday.
