Bought the Warn Wireless Control for safety on my receiver mounted M8000. It transmits out beyond the length of my 100' cable for easy single person use. Plugs right into cable remote port of the M8000. So 5 second install. I just hang the antenna/receiver box from my hood (or from my tire carrier when winching from rear receiver hitch) and can get out to a 100' radius in any direction from winch. 100' away is plenty safe for me.
I plan on making a custom receiver 2" throat welded to a 3/8" plate to bolt into winch mount bolt holes on my Mopar Offroad Front Winch bumper I have yet to install. Need to cut a 2" hole with a plasma cutter where the cable slot is before I install the front bumper.
I bought the Mopar Winch cover plate to hide the custom receiver mount installed in lieu of the winch.
Hidden front receiver and less weight without winch mounted up front.
The M8000 is mounted to the Warn Receiver mount as well. Warn all the way.
I can still mount a winch into my bumper later if I change my mind. Can hide the 2" hole(that I cut to accomodate the receiver mount) with a roller fairlead.
