in cab winch control

I know I have seen it on here but have been searching for an hour and cant find it. I am looking for a detailed write up on how to wire a winch to in-cab control switches. I suck at wiring and was hoping to find a decent write up. My orginal idea was to just run the stock controller from warn through the firewall to an empty switch and call it good but there is no way in hell that fat wire will fit through the firewall. Thanks

I wired one up. What kind of winch do you have? I have a Warn M8000

The way I ran it was the 12v to activate the solenoids to a switch first then to momentary on/off double pole double throw switch.

The switch(s). The controller is between the cup holder and 4WD shift lever and the 12v switch is the black switch on the right under the ash tray.

The good thing is you don't have to take the solenoids apart. You can take the cover off of the controller box and have access to the electrical connections. Let me get on it tomorrow and I can get a writeup for you.

I was looking into this as well, but ended up going with the Warn wireless controller. So you have the best of both worlds, can control from inside the vehicle or outside when the need arises. Couldn't be happier with the choice.
