JB Custom Mafg Conversion for D20

Guys:

Does anybody have any experience with a JB Custom Manufacturing Twin Stick conversion for a D20 installed in a CJ7?

I can feel the flames already but I bought one of these after finding the guy on ebay motors. Hey, he had a good seller rating. It's a nice looking unit, all stainless and even includes a boot. Initially his info says that they are a direct replacement for J10's and 20's and Commandos etc but a picture posted on his web site looked just like a D20 out of a CJ. I contacted the guy by e-mail and asked if it would work on a CJ. He said yes so I bought one.

However, there are no instructions on how to remove the interlock pins to make the thing work like a twin stick should. The manufacturer is not a Jeep guy so he's no help. Anybody out there know anything about this?

Re: JB Custom Mafg Conversion for D20

Grab your user manual and learn how to tear the D20 Apart. When You get to the Interlock pill, stop, remove it, and put everything else back together.

Honestly, the D20 isn't all that complicated, and a Haynes or Chiltons will be your most valuble tool for stuff like this.

on another note... n ot to kick you in the nuts too hard, It costs about $7-10 to make your own twin stick for the D20.

Thanks Brent:

There must be something written down that says you will find that "how to" web page AFTER you spent the money on the more expensive option.

Thanks again,

That is like someone asking if you CAN play tennis. You reply: "Yes, I can play tennis. Will you teach me?"

Freebie, before you get too carried away about removing the interlock, be aware that the interlock isn't terribly tight on a lot of D20 cases. The day mine rolled out of the dealership I could jiggle the linkage into 2-low. It's between Neutral and 4 low. If it had twin stick linkage it might find front wheel drive too.

Jim: Thanks for the post. There is a little slop in ours and it WILL go into 2Low. But actually the idea for the twin stick was to have the option of front drive only. If, for example you broke something in the rear and needed to get back to camp.

Like anything else there is nothing for free and I'm sure there are some down sides to that if. So, I am willing and want to listen to any sound advice on this.

Again, thanks for the post.

If you break something in the back, then just unbolt the driveshaft and put it into 4 low, and voila you have 2 low front only.
