transfer case and tire questions

transfer case first

i have a 75 cj5 w/a dana 20
i saw in a magazine an ad
for a twin stick conversion
i thought that might be cool
to do what i was wondering
was how exactly do they function
i have an idea but would really like
to know before i commit to doing this
its just going to be a "sunday" cruiser
and maybe some light off road and thought
it would be a neat add on
as far as tires
it does not have a lift and had 33/12.5-15
tires and 15x10 wheels and didnt rub any where
that i could see my question is taht i see alot of jeeps
with the same tires but are lifted 2 to 4 inches
why would that be is there somthing im missing
or is the lift for more off roading purposes
i know that on my jeep that the tires fill up the wheel
wells pretty good
but they dont really rub
but i am not going to do any serious off roading either
i had a 76 cj5 when i was 16 with no lift
and had the same tires
just wondering....

A twin stick would allow you to have interesting modes for your transfer case. It allows you to change which axles get power and at what ratio.

As far as the lift, yes you need a lift for those tires if you go off road. They will hit upon uptravel if you start stuffing tires.
