I started off with this kit
http://www.roadlessgear.com/Merchant...Y/PROD/M/RG631
Got rid of the plate and mounted it in my door were the window and door locks are. I ended up changing out the toggle switch for a nice low profile rocker. sorry for the shitty pic just went out and did a cell phone shot

I did it. I got a remote winch control (Mile Marker) then opened the receiver and modified it by adding a switch to it that manually operates the small relays inside the receiver unit that the wireless remote activates. The relays in the remote receiver in turn operate in parallel with the normal winch control switch that operates the larger relays in the winch control unit. I used a small SPDT momentery toggle switch with a center off position.

I've seen kits from folks like 12V guy that uses full size toggle switches. It's not too hard to do. All you need is to mimic the supplied winch control cable.

Some EE you turned out to be if you needed to buy a kit for something this simple, Bob. Now you're a poser and mall runner at engineering too. Neener, neener. LOL

It's a Mile Marker remote winch control receiver with a mini toggle switch added to the front panel. Now use your imagination. LOL

Does it have a on/off switch. I ordered a in/out switch and a on/off switch. otherwise my curious son would rip my front bumper off if he was to play with it.

hit what? the bottom switch arms the the switch that activates the winich
the very bottom switch turns on the switch below the mirror switch the switch below the mirror switch alows you to spool in or out ....make sense?

I thought you were supposed to be an EE at Intel. Maybe what the AZ folks tell me is true, that you're really the janitor out there. LOL

What's all this bunny and pancake nonsense about?

Pics, stone tablets, whatever, you would still be clueless and anything would be a wasted effort. LOL
