bought a warn winch and bumper for 550 guy says it works great and all but he lost the controler ,says he will bring it to me when he finds it paid him a lil less because of it, How much is the controler new and were do i get one ??

Was that the one on craigslist?? Is it the 8274??

As for getting a control box you could make one youself or call up Drive Products in Port Kells. I ordered some chit from them recently for my winch. It may take a few weeks to get it though but atleast you'll get one.

Was it on a CJ bumper?? My freinds uncle had his go "missing" and we are looking for it.
He now has a winch control and no winch?? weird eh?

yea hahah well this one was on craigs list it was off a ranger , its an 8000 pound winch the guy had it with it, he put away else ware because a winch will stand up to abuse in the shop but the controler wont ,now he jusst cant remember were he put it . he says he will bring it to me ONCE he finds it but im thinkin IF he finds it so i gotta look into it , My buddy has a dead champion and the guy who sold me the winch claims that the controler of the champion will interchange ? what you guys think ? and what are prices of new controlers ?

Not sure if they are interchangeable or not. not sure of pricing either. Pirate 4x4 is a good source of info for winches. search warn winch. I hope the guy finds the controller for your sake.

Just make one.
Use a spring loaded toggle.
U also wire it to the cab with another toggle in the dash.

Hmmm im gona have to do some trial and error for that. I never made one ,done some shit couple years ago in school but now a days shop class is being run over .Think i could do it ,But still it would be nice to just get the controler.

Get this. I phoned lordco abby and they quoted me $90 for the warn remote. I phone lordco maple ridge and they guy tells me $180go fuck yourself go fuck yourself So I tells him the abby store quoted me $90 and he says well that's not possible blah blah we can't sell it for less than $180 cause If we do we won't be competitive...againgo fuck yourself I did manage to get one off craigslist for$50 and it is brand new.[36]

I despise lordco and will only go there as a last resort.

|sorry for the rant:D
