Which wireless remote for a Warn M8000 or M8000-S winch?

I want to get a wireless remote for my Warn M8000-S winch (same as M8000, but with synthetic line), but I'm confused about which to buy.

There are several choices from Warn, and most are probably not for this winch.

It's a new M8000-s with the latest controller box.

What is part number I need for a wireless remote for a Warn M8000?

the # is 1.800.543.9276 just press it into you phone and repeat the question when someone answers. These people are some-what familiar with warn products.

Of course they are, and that's good advice now that it's a weekday.

I figured it was a weekend when I posted, and JF guys know a lot. So someone might have known. No harm in asking.

Called Warn.

Warn part 90287 is the new wireless controller for newer M8000 and all their other newer winches too.

$130 at Quadratec or Summit Racing.

The Warn wireless controller is plug and play. Takes 30 seconds to setup.

Why need a wireless controller? I am always in my jeep behind the wheel when running the winch. I run a normal controller with the wire running across the hood, looped around my cage and the controller sits on the dash. Always within reach while wheeling.

If cord is long enough, sounds good.

Remote cords are purposefully made long enough for that.

I have never seen a chord that wasn't 10' plus.
