XRC8 Winch by smittybilt "solenoid"

I have an older model XRC8 winch but the solenoid is bad in it and smittybilt told me the newer solenoid and controller would work to upgrade it or if someone had the older model with a locked up motor that i could get the solenoid off.

This is the best pic I can get the back off it is too close to the front grill, it does not have the power wires coming from the battery hooked up though.

I have the same winch/solenoid, and smittybilt told me that the new solenoids will not work with the first gen winches. They said they had the old solenoids but they were $120, which is half the price of a new winch almost and twice the cost of the new style replacement solenoids. Anyone know of a different replacement that will work?

Sorry it took me so long to get back to ya but I ended up calling smittybilt and they only had one left so sold it to me for like 60 bucks cause it wasn't the whole thing missing the cover but works great
