Several options here. Winch Control Panels.
I have a wireless remote from Engo and there is a bit of lag from actuating to winch turning off.

I'd recommend the Badlands wireless winch remote from Harbor freight. Assuming compatibility, it only costs $30 after coupon. It worked on my Warn XD 9000i after slight modification of the plug via dremel.

You can make one easy enough. I just used a carling switch to match my ARB switches in my pod. Use a momentary rocker and you can even get custom switch covers that show on/out for the rocker. I also added a single pole switch to disable power to the rocker in case someone gets button happy, or I hit it by accident while bouncing around. All installed in a kilby center console pod on top of dash. Very handy to use and watch outside while winching. Sorry no pic readily available.

Winching is not the safest thing to do in any respect. You have two tons of metal at the end of a thin cable under considerable tension. Too much can go wrong quickly, you want positive control of that.

Hardwire it.

I really like your setup can you explain how you wire this into the solenoid? A diagram would be amazing

I don't want to speak for Jaxon, but here is a diagram that I found helpful.



Of course your winch solenoid may be a little different looking, but all the same posts and wires should be there. Good Luck with your install!

After a lot of research I plan to buy these. http://www.12voltguy.com/mini-buttons.html

Haven't done it yet so can't vouch personally. Reviews I've seen (few) are outstanding.
