Benefits of a twin stick shifter Benefits of a twin stick shifter
Pros & Cons of a twin stick
Skiddy
07/18/06
Now why would anyone want to do something like that? Well because it has a very cool factor.

Pros: You can shift your front and rear independently
Pros: If you break your front or rear u-joint you can get home or
back to camp
Pros: If it’s snowy/icy and you have a locker in the rear you can
shift the rear into neutral and drive in front wheel drive, if
open differential a lot less squirrly
Pros: If you happen to get sideways on a hill or around an obstacle
you can shift the rear into neutral and just use front wheel
drive to pull you around
Pros: You can put both in neutral and no one will be able to figure
out how to steel it. Use your e-brake when doing this
Pros: Very simple to install on the J-shift transfer case
Pros: Will work with an auto or manual transmission
Pros: You can drive around in rear low two wheel drive, which
is fun when just poking along.
Pros: A lot easier to shift than the old single J shifter



Cons: You will have to widen your tunnel cover a little.
Cons: A little more difficult to install on a T-shift transfer case.
Cons: If your not careful you can mix up your hi and low and have a
real bucking Bronco



The shift pattern is: Left stick is for the front all the way back is Hi
Middle is Neutral
All the way forward is Low
Right stick is same, when normal driving you will want
your Left stick (front) in neutral and the right (rear) in
Hi

Here is what the shift rails will look like before and after you cut them this is for the J-shift T-case only.

modifying the flags for a twin stick "J" shifter

This is great stuff guys, thx! im new on CB and am just getting started with my 76 bronco. I saw some pics on the beginning of this thread that shows the J shifter before and after the flags are modified.

Here is my question, can you modify the flags without pulling the transfer case and the shift rails?

any pics or how tos to walk me through the process?

it's pretty simple really when you get to it you will see how it works. yes you sure can cut the flags with the transfer case installed a little easier if you have a body lift. i used a dremel with a cut off wheel worked great

T-Shift Dumb Question

I installed JB Fab Twin Sticks for my T-Shift. Mainly just to make it easier to shift. I didn't make any internal modification to make it independent on the front. This is the dumb question...The stickers that came with it just show high, neutral and low range. If I'm just wanting to run 2 High, do I put the left side in neutral and the right stick in high? I think I've been running around for a year now with both sticks in the high position and the hubs unlocked. Although I'm sure it's okay, I want to have this set right.

Hey Chief,
For 2H, the left shifter is in Neutral and the right shifter is in High... You should be able to feel the shifter switch in and out of each gear.
hope this helps...
