HAND THROTTLE
Part #RE1000

The universal hand throttle is designed for use in Jeeps with a manual transmission. Unit mounts to gear shift
lever for easy access and control. Works as an off-road cruise control for technical trail sections and is

invaluable when simultaneous use of clutch brake and throttle is required. Kit includes all necessary parts to

mount to throttle body or carb.

Pros: easy install once you figure it out, works like a champ.
Cons: directions suck, most parts not needed so it can get a lil confusing.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Once I figures out what i wanted to do and what parts I was going to use it took about 15 minutes to install. I installed one in the wifes TJ and one in my YJ. Easy to use and a great addition for offroad. Word to the wise make sure you can shift into all of your gears before you think you are done and that your cables are routed correctly.

Pros: Easy to install, great on the trail, smooths out the ride because you're not bumping the throttle, just set the hand throttle a bit and let it crawl, increase rpm's when winching
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My RE Hand throttle works great. It never binds up, the ratchet design is great for the trail when driving from one obstacle to another when there are lots of rocks or bumps in the trail. It's annoying when you slam the gas and make the ride real jerky from your foot accidently hitting the gas. The hand throttle combats this. Just set the throttle where you want it and let your jeep crawl over everything on the trail without having to mess with the throttle. It's also very helpful to set for a higher rpm when winching or airing up tires. The hand throttle also makes it easier to use clutch, brake, and throttle without having to dance all over the pedals. Set the throttle and you're on your way. One of my top favorite and most helpful modifications done to date, cheap too.

Pros: Easy to install & easy to use. Ratchet style works great. It does what it says it will do and does it well as it should.
Cons: None.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Without lockers, the hand throttle (plus brakes) makes easy work of foolin' your dif into engaging and getting you out of or through a tough spot. Read about it on the forum and thought I'd try it. Great advice and turns out it's sometimes a lifesaver.

It's also good for holding a steady, higher idle if your winchin' or something. One other thing, when you're in slow moving traffic it's a great poor man's "cruise control". Not a recommended use...
