It depends on your install, etc - you may have to cut the grill slat inserts to plug in the remote or engaget the clutch. With the winch hidden, problem solving will require taking the bumper cover off (not horribly hard). Lots of custom possibilities depending on where you want to go with the project. Since the solenoid has to be separate, you could extend the wires and mount it under the hood to plug into.
I have been thinking about doing a wireless remote and keeping the clutch engaged - would have to reverse out the winch line (rather than free spooling), but that would be pretty cool to have no breaks and have it all hidden.
