I think the twin stick gives an option of 2wd in low ratio which you don't normally have but i think that's about it

After owning one on an Atlas ll I can tell you that it is worth it. But it all comes down to how much time on the trail you are going to put in. There will be times where you can put your rear axle in N and your front in High and allow the rear to slide the side of a rock and the front to dig etc. Most likely you will not use it every time out unless it is a built rig that is trail only. Just recently my rear cv joint went out. I pulled the rear drive shaft put the front into Hi and drove home. For most I would say it is overkill but it will help when you go to sell it. Plus.....the more levers the better

it lets you have more choices, like FWD low and RWD Low, but it also makes shifting the transfercase much easier IMHO.

Maybe on the dana 300 the shifting is easier. But the only fault I have with the Atlas is the way the gears are cut it takes a little time before you learn the tricks of geting it into gear easy.

I have a Currie twin stick on a D300 (also have the teraa lo kit for the case). The twin stick lets you isolate or combine the ranges for front and rear diff. You have a greater range of options, including rear or front wheel drive only, front lo, front high, etc. The tranny being auto or stick does not affect the installation or use of the twin stick.

One stick controls the front and the other controls the rear - Hi - N - Low for both. You have to remove the pills(interlocks) in the TC in order to get Front High only. This will however allow you to accidently put the front in high and the rear in low which will explode your case.

I use my twin stick quite a bit to do "front digs" or "front burns" as we call them. Helps to pivot the rig around on the trail. Alot of times, I'll just leave the buggy in front wheel drive as it makes it easier to snake thru tight switchback trails..

Here's a little bit of "front dig" work.. I don't have a cutting brake so I normally power brake and then drive the front tires thru the brakes letting the rear tires drag...
