Anyone know about Warn winches?

Just purchased a my first jeep (yea!) and it has a winch with no controller (boo!) No markings on the winch, and I see a lot of controllers on ebay that say they fit 3 and 5 pin, but I wanted to make sure first!

Thanks for the help! If you know the warn winch model that would great as well.

pictures attached!

Even though the tag is missing, look it over real close, the model and serial numbers are stamped into it through the label location. So even if the tag comes off, the numbers stay.

There should also be a metal tag on the bottom side of the motor.

God I miss that Jeep. Forgot the kinda Jeep, 80 SX4.

I think it's safe to say you need a 3-pin controller...
Americans sleep safely in their beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do them harm...

Happiness is a Barrett M82A1 .50 caliber and a target at least a click out........
