I'm not 100% sure, but I think if you have something to sell you can just sell it here, or post up a link to a site where you are selling it.

I really need to confirm that. This site has vendors too that I dont want to piss off. This isnt a "one off" thing. I could theoretically get as many as I needed to sell to you guys.

I can guarantee though that there are guys on here that will LOVE IT. Best $100 you will ever spend ;)

Once I get the go ahead, I will tell you all. I hate to be so cryptic, but I need to confirm this before I start to give it out. I am not a vendor, just a guy who came up with something pretty ingenious that all Jeepers with a winch will truly appreciate.

You aren't going to get in trouble here for talking about your product...if you do start selling them I am sure you will be encouraged to sign up as a vendor and get your yellow star for $100.00. There are several vendors here that are not preferred vendors. :beer::beer::beer:

What ya got?

Please do not post your product without signing up as a sponsor. As a paying sponsor,... yeah right. F-it Just post up dude. :beer:

But you don't have a $100 bucks. :thefinger:
Actually, I just sold my stock front axle shafts to Alec W, and just by coincidence I sold them for $100. So, ... :thefinger: yourself! :)

Ok, I have a Wireless winch controller. It has 2 buttons that are momentary on (press to activate, release to stop) for paying in and out of your winch. It has 2 more buttons that are on/off (press once for on, press again for off) that you can use for an air compressor, lights, anything with a switch basically.

The wiring is easy enough to do (I have now installed it on 3 winches a Superwinch 8500 and 2 X Champions) all you need is a power source for the receiver (I spliced into my CB) and the cabling to run to the solenoids of the winch. It is an insulated 3 wire cable included in the "kit" I am selling. The wireless fob has been tested up to 100' and works awesome. The Fob also has an on off switch, so you dont accidentally activate it.

The receiver box can be mounted really anywhere you want. I was able to remove the cover of it, wrap it in electrical tape and mount in the spot at the side of the dash beside the right vent. If you wanted to keep the cover on you could also throw it on the plastic piece under the glove box. (it is handy there because you can remove the inline fuse to ensure no random signal set it off at the mall or where ever ;)) I dont think range would be affected much there and you can always add a small wire to route the antenna whereever you wanted.

The winch companies sell these, yes. They dont have the two extra buttons though for aux equip and most dont allow you to use your wired controller after install, mine does.
No soldering involved (unless you want to) and it can be installed in less than an hour.
I have yet to find a "brand name" one for under $140, my full kit will be $100 and to the States that includes shipping.

Full instructions with pictures will be included. Not to mention I would be available to help anyone. All I would need is a picture of your solenoids.


The only thing you need to do is confirm if your controller connector is able to be jumpered to make your winch work. If so, then my kit will work with it. As far as I can tell most of the cheaper "made in China" winches are controlled like this. I do not know about Warns yet. And there isnt a Powerplant for me to test on either.(I would love to see it control the compressor on there too!)

So what do you guys think? Be honest please.

Here are some vids of it in action up close:

thanks

And if this pisses off the vendors and mods please delete it.

I guess this won't support the Powerplant in so far as really replacing the controller, correct? I passed on their wireless controller, because it didn't replace all of the functions. Why have two controllers afterall.
