While "surfing" at Amazon I stumbled across this Wireless Winch Remote Control for $17.
It comes with absolutely NO documentation, but fortunately I was able to garner what I needed from scouring the web and examining the wired pendant controller that came with the "Thing" (what SWMBO calls my Outfitter 400).
Once installed I found it performed just as claimed and in fact better--my testing found the remotes to have a solid 120 + ft range--though I cannot for the life of me envision a situation where I'd want to run the winch from 100 feet away? The control module is fully potted and waterproof, the remotes are well made and as sturdy as they need to be, HIGHLY recommended!
If anyone is interested I can post photos and a wiring diagram...

As I have shopped around I have noticed the sxs manufacturers leave out things I consider critical like a windshield and a roof counting on you buying extra stuff.
Is there any advantage to buying accessories from the dealership when buying a new one?
Is there any general quality difference between OEM and aftermarket accessories?
I also plan to buy a winch and am considering a Harbor Freight winch. Thoughts? Also, I've always thought the idea of a receiver mounted hitch makes lots of sense so you can use it on the front or back. Has anyone seen this done? Thoughts?

2017 Honda pioneer with front tires 27-9R12 (rims 6.5 wide) and back tires 27-11R-12 (rims 8.0 wide). What issues if mounting theses tires on rims 7 wide?
My uncle has a Warn winch he used to have On his gas Yamaha golf cart, he said I could have it if I wanted it, I'm just not quite sure how to hook it up, wiring wise.
I have no other electrical accessories that are tasking the alternator (15 amp)
And I can still buy the OEM winch mount or fabricate one myself.
The mule has 2 electrical accessories hook ups, but it's a fairly small wire, not sure if could handle the load.. I even though about welding up a plate as there is plenty of room to mount another battery for the winch only either under the bed or under the front dash/firewall. And using a deep cycle battery and keep it on a tender.
A winch would come in handy for moving larger limbs or stumps or sections of a tree when I'm by myself.
Any info how to proceed is appreciated.
