Universal Wireless Winch remote

Does anyone have any suggestions or personal experience for/with a universal wireless winch remote? I have a smittybilt XRC (that forwhatever reason smittybilt didn't offer a wireless capability for) that a my buddy and I are trying to figure out how/where to wire up, and was wondering if anyone had a wired in remote that they recommend. I have checked amazon, but all I can find is the cheap chicom crap.

I needed to move a vehicle with my trailer and found my winch control wasn't working. Rather than waiting for a new one to be delivered I decided to convert the winch to wireless control. I obtained a Traveller Wireless Remote Control from Tractor Supply.

Here's the receiver of the controller and the Smittybuilt wiring harness I needed to adapt it to.

Here's the winch with no controller:

It might have been neater to just use a new connector but someone may want to go back to the stock Smittybuilt controller in the future. Here's everything wired up:

TA-DA!

I was looking to wire the wireless controller (that kind of sounds funny...) into the factory control solenoid so I would still be able to use the wired controller that came with it, in case of dead batteries or what not, how big is the ciruit board for that one? Also, how long have you been using yours and what are your thoughts on the quality of it? I'd rather not have to replace it every 6 months or so. My buddy does wiring pretty well, so getting a setup like that wired in shouldn't be too much of a hassle for him.

Parallel wiring at the spade connectors should be no big deal. I've only used it once to move a car. Don't see any long term issue though.
