If you're recovering someone else, an in-cab control prevents you from watching the wrap of the cable. Better to have the rear of the Jeep strapped to something, and be out in sight of the winch to watch the cable, especially if it's a long pull.
And if you're recovering yourself, so you need to be inside the vehicle during the recovery, in-cab controls prevent you from sitting in your regular position - you're probably hunched over to reach some switch on the dash.
And, you're probably in some precarious position, seeing you need to be winched, so you don't want to have to be reaching to hit some switch.
With a standard corded remote, you're better off.

Old, noisy, slow, and just generally wonderful. Wheeling Jeep.
Less old, less noisy, less slow, daily driver Jeep.
