    if you're throttle by wire you could put a knob, or whatever you want (as long as it read % of throttle) on the steering wheel, on the armrest.
    if it's mechanical throttle (i can't remember if it stayed 'till the second gens or not) i'm not sure, there are people smart enough on this forum that they could figure it out.

    Everyone thinks they are dumb. They aren't Ive considered it after wheelign with my jeep buddies with manuals. You can set it at an RPM and then just work the clutch with left foot and brake with the right. Its VERY handy for very technical areas.


    Easiest thing to use...bike gear changer. What most people use. Very easy to setup.

    Totally makes sense. Don't get your panties in a wad about it haha, just wasn't thinking about it from that point of view. I was looking at it from a performance standpoint and honestly couldn't figure it out. Not sure why that offended you :notsure:

    Also most Jeep guys mount the bike shifter on the stick of their manual tranny.

    Yep basically. You get a shifter like that and just run the cable to piggy back your TB. Most do it on the same bracket the CC is on. Then each click makes the motor RPMs climb. Pretty handy when your going over real real technical stuff.

    how do you keep the bike shifter from moving (shifting) when you use the gas pedal though?

    Yup...

    My husband installed hand throttle on our Jeep. Used a bicycle shifter/cable assembly.

    The hand throttle got used more during winching ....hold the rpm's up to keep the battery happy.

    Never thought about using a bike shifter I've always seen them made just with the brake lever. I'd be wary of the shift lever getting stuck

    It depends on the shifter you use and how its setup. But ultimately.... it's a specialized setup involving the throttle. You NEVER want to walk away from it and/or always have your hands on it, and you will always be able to control it.

    The shifter we used (el-cheapo) you could set it to 'click' in place for a constant RPM or you could set it to manual input. The manual input, you could tighten or loosen the handle for a harder/easier throw.

    And ultimately..... If it gets stuck and you can't release it somehow. It was probably installed wrong to begin with.
