Hand Throttle

On my CJ I had a hand throttle that attached to the shifter allowing me to work the clutch and brake without having to worry about the gas pedal when in rough country and crawling over/around things. It had a trip lever that would disconnect instantaly if needed. Does anyone know if someone still makes them, I cannot find any info on them?

most that I have seen are home made, and use a bycycle brake levar. it is spring loaded, so it goes back to idle as soon as you let go of it.

personally, for the one I made, I used a byclyle shifter levar, with an adjustable tension knob. with the knob backed off, it works just like the brake levar style. however, with the tension knob tightened down, I can set the rpm, and it will hold it(usefull when winching, or running OBA)

maroon 1987 Grand Wagoneer. stock for now...

Thank you for the info on the throttle control. Looks like making one would be more fun than buying it. I apprecaite the info from each of you.

I'm into mine for under $20, including the thumb shifter I grabbed off of a bicycle my neighbor had in the trash pile!

Recycling rocks!

I just made one for my jeep. I had a factory cruise control cable from another jeep and a bicycle brake lever. The cruise cable works perfectly, it attaches to the stock bracket on the motor.
