    Has anyone installed either of these companies twin sticks on the 205? I was hoping to see some photos of there construction. JKW has pretty good photos on their site but ORD's are lacking. Who has one installed, what do you think of it?

    I have ORD's triple stick on my Doubler, which is remarkably like their '205 twinstick.

    Testing the linkages:

    I have the JKW one and love it. Never had any problems with it.

    Aaron, what tranny do you have. From the looks of your 203 adapter it is either a TH350 or a 700R4.

    Well, after looking at the pics again i answered my own question, TH350.

    if you're in the market for doubler shifter stuff, you might wanna contact NWF also. They can do traditional mechanical linkage or cable shifters... your choice. I am gonna go with their cable shifter. Bling! My trans is cable shifted also, allows for a lot of flexibility when you change things on your rig.

    Yeah. Desert Rat here did the same thing on his '700 and due to its length had ALL kinds of fun making it fit, had to extend the floor tunnel something fierce, bloody mess, plus his crossmembers and driveshafts were a hassle.

    I never knew having a '350 was so much fun ;)

    i have the ORD twin stick kit on my 203 (yeah a 203) because I couldnt find the factory linkage anywhere and from what I read the factory 203 linkage is prone to trouble. When installing i had to bend the bracket that attatches it to the transfer case, but my bracket was a little different so that didnt bother me at all. It works great and I didnt not have to trim anything at all. The only thing I can really rant on is the shifter knobs, its a nice product topped of with some lame knobs. It would be nice to have the shift patterns atleast on it or something a little bit beefier but it really doesnt matter.

    Yeah, the plastic ones were ... decidedly budget. :dunno:

    The WFO ones are nice, if spendy. :deal: That's what I ended up with, as in the last pic.
