Talking Just bought my first Jeep

Last Friday I bought a 2006 Wrangler X. It is red and has the 4.0L inline 6 with a 6 speed manual.

I am really excited to make a few mods and go off roading for the first time. I have been browsing the forum for a couple hours and already got a few good ideas and put the forum app on my phone!

I have 1 problem so far:
My Jeep came with a 8500lb 12V SuperWinch on the front, but there is no controller. I have never had an offroad vehicle or used a winch before. The winch has a 3-pin connection, but from my understanding those aren't made anymore? I would like to get a wireless controller, does anyone have any advice on my best options (custom wiring it isn't a problem for me if I have an idea about what should connect where). Thanks.

Looking forward to being part of a great community of Jeep owners!

That looks exactly like what I wanted other than a wireless solution. I think this may be my number one choice now, looks really nice! Thanks!

Just emailed them and that switch and wiring kit will work with my winch. Looks like that is going to be one of my mods to my Jeep I do pretty soon!

Thanks again for the link, just ordered the buttons today. Hopefully they will get here quick and I can install them next weekend
