Winch control cable

Anybody have or know where to get a winch control cable cheap?
I've been looking for a switch to make my own but I can't find what I want so I may just have to break down and buy a ready made unit.

No, I don't know what make the winch is, all the markings are either warn off or painted over but this isn't a problem, I can rewire the end if necassary.
Thanks.

Have you considered just getting an in-cab controller with the switches there? All you'd have to do is then run wires to the solenoid.

What brand is that winch?

I would prefer to have the ability to run the winch from outside the rig.
I've looked for a momentary 3 position toggle switch but no luck around here, I'll probably have to order one online but that's a last resort.
I was hoping someone could tell where to look for a generic winch control.

The only thing I can read on the winch is an E in red that looks like the first letter in the name and then MX 4500 for a model number.

40 bucks is pretty cheap. I tried to replace the winch controller on a warn M8000 and never had any luck.
