Twin stick

I have a 80 CJ 5 300 Dana and looking to put a twin stick set up in it. Are some better than others? I am looking to install on but do not want to take the tranny & transfer case out.
Tks

tks for the quick replies. 1 more question with JB's setup did you have to remove the tranny & transfer case? Or did you work it from the bottom? Did you have to remove skid plate?

Did it all from underneath. Nothing but the tunnel cover thing had to be removed

I did mine on the bench, but it could be done from underneath depending on were your exhaust is run. I wouldn't be able to do it on mine as I have exhaust on both sides of the transfer case.

I also had to heat the shifter rods and bend them to make them clear my tunnel opening as I didn't want to cut the floor any.

Measure with a Micrometer
Cutter with an ax
Beat it to fit
Paint it to match

One more question, on the existing shifter the big bolt that holds the shifter to the transfer case. Does it slide out? There does not seem to be much clearance on the non bolt side. What keeps it in?

It's threaded into the aluminum tabs that the shifter fits into. Unthread it and then it slides out.
