Default Warn 8274 rocker switch wiring????

I'm in the process of wiring up my 8274 to a mon. on - off - mon. on switch. The problem I face already is that the switch only has 3 prongs on the back. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this? Would I have to get a regular on-off switch to run in series?

Well no one else has taken a shot at this, so here's my two cents.
Not exactly sure what your asking? And not exactly sure what an 8274 is? I assume you got a winch and no controler and just want to wire up a switch? And the wires are coming from the winch itself and are not the "big" wires to the battery.
If you have a 3 wire system, one wire will be hot (12v) to ground. (if the "big" wires to the battery are connected)use a volt meter or test light . It should go in the center position of the switch (normally). The other two wires should go to the outer positions. If the winch "pays in" when you want it to "pay out" then sway the outer two wires.
Did I just confuse you? Hope this helps.

Well it's a Warn 8274-50 winch. I do have the controller, but i'm wanting to add a hard wiring switch in the jeep to control it as well. When looking at the controller, I believe there is 5 wires hooked up. I need to know how to hook up my mon on - off - mon on 3 prong switch to this. I think I have to get another on - off switch. Just need some wiring diagrams from someone that has done it before.
