      I have their twin sticks for my D300 but haven't installed them yet. And yes, the billet knobs are nice.

          I bought JB twins. I just finished installing on my D20. Here are some pics of the finished deal. I found some inconsistancy with JB's twins. I don't know if it was just my transfer case or if he was lacking a little in "consistancy" in his product. The things I liked:

          Stainless shifters
          Finished product looked good
          Billet knobs
          Cheap

          What I didn't:
          A little off on the welding required some tweaking with the torch under the boot so the shifters both appeared in neutral when they were.

          Binding in the shifters required removing the stock linkage mount, cutting out half an inch, rewelding, and a few stift kicks of the hammer to get right. The long and the short of this is his lever length was not long enough with the proper holes to prevent binding. This may also be due to inproper alignment of the stock shifter holes that bolt it to the case. It's hard to tell, there may be some inconsistancy with Jeep D20's too.

          The instructions sucked.

          Full function of the twins....4 low, 4high, front high, front low, rear high, and rear low are only achieved by removing the interlock pills. This is a DEEP project and I had mine rebuilt with 26 spline output shaft when I did it. If you don't remove the pills on a d20 you get 4 high, 4 low, low rear, high rear and that thats it.

          Here are some pics of the finished deal.

            I went with a twin stick from D&D Machine. He's in Wash. St. You don't have to change your shift rails. It has double end poviting I-lets that bolt to the rails. Sticks are SS. The sticks look the same as JB's. The mounting bracket is different. When I had my tc rebuild I had them leave the pills out. He's listed on ebay. I can dig up the # for you is you want it. Had it in for a year now. Works great. The only thing I didn't like was the spec's are for a stock jeep. Sticks were too short for my jeep. I added 4" to mine. If you have a lift they will be to short. He said he if I sent them back he would make them as long as I wanted. Thought I would Give you another choice. If I remember right it was $130.

                  That countertop is actually in the garage and makes up my bench. I found some old cabnets from a remodel and it was easier to buy the premade stuff than to make a "real" bench. That would be something I'd do though. I used many a kitchen utensil when the time proved appropriate.

                    I have a 4inch suspension lift and no body lift, but I have the tranny lowering kit installed. JB's twins were a perfect length. The tranny drop kit made for some slight trimming of the tub but nothing big. Without the mods I prolly would not have had to trim the tub at all. The bracket I was complaining about having to change was this one. I had to shorten it over a half an inch and reweld and tweak it a bit to the drivers side.

                    This was due to the part that attached to the shift rail pivot being to short. Unfortunately, that didn't have anything to do with the lift or any mods I made.

                    Just providing info here, it occured to me that I was not clear about the mod I had to make and upper1 reminded me. If the place he mentions will work with you, they sound great.

                      I tried to find my thread from last year. I had a pic of the twinstick. Can't see it good enough to take a pic. of it in the jeep. Blackwater and I were talking about it. I think he was gonna save the info on it. I'll pm him to see if he has it still. Maybe you can find it.The thread was d20 twin stick. My bracket is nothing like yours. found the old thread but the pic's won't come up.

                        speaking of kitchen tools...i have an old worn out knife sharpener in my toolbox i use as a bolt hole alignment tool...the outside is soft enough not to damage threads but its hard enough not to bend

                          My twin stick was an early MORE OR when they were in UT just one stick & had to have a shop bend the OEM but it worked fine.After going to the 4.0 tj engine & aw4 there wasn't any room fror the twin sticks so I'm back to the original single stick.

                              Wrote you back last night, Upper1. I'm not sure I sent you back the correct link, but I see that Ole Folks used the same one in his post. Is that the right one?
