Has anyone actually gone and done this on here yet? I've been wanting one for a while and with my intermittent issues with the OEM remote connection decaying away, I went and ordered the same kit as is written up here.

Also, FWIW, I found out how to replace the pin sockets in the Warn remote connection when they do rot off. Seeing that I have tons of mollex connectors from pc cases laying about, I just take one pin socket out and use that to replace the rotted one out of the winch.

I never use the remote anymore. If you need pics, I'll take some later, but this is in a CJ, not a TJ, so my switches are on a separate panel on the dash.

K, I have a panel coming. My thought is mounting it just to the left of the steering wheel on the lower dash panel.

I looked at the Kwan years ago and really didn't want to go with the cruise control switch for it. I like having it separate.

X2 on everything Shawn said. I don't even know where my plug in control is.

Works great, though I have to replace my clockspring in the column before installing one in my own jeep.

the only downside I see is that it piggy backs off other systems, so it's reliability is dependant on the reliability of the O.E. cruise and column components.

follow this writeup like I did, worked great. Using an extension cord for wiring worked awesome too for keeping it clean.

I mounted the switches to some cheap angled aluminum from the hardware store

(the left is the 3-way toggle for in-stop-out power, and the first one to the right is the power control to keep from accidentaly hitting it, the rest are lights and crap)
