Found out today I need some way of keeping the revs up when winching. Anyone running a hand throttle or have a better way of doing it while standing outside the truck? Thanks. ....Steve

Meant to mention it today when we were talking about that, but someone here posted a link to a type of "hand" throttle that used to be an option on LC's. Somewhere at Slee Offroad . Was Spendy, but can give you an idea of other options besides old school mtb shifters.

A old texas member has one on his 97 (bear). He loves it and it works really well.

I used a bicycle brake handle and cable, mounted on the shifter (5spd), I love it, I put a zip tie around it to hold hi-idle when using the OBA
Where did you run the cable? Do you know of a write-up on how it's done? Thanks. ....Steve

I ran it down through the shifter boot, up the tranny, then up in front of the firewall and kind of follow the stock throttle cable.

Fairly simple to do all in all, I didn't use a write-up.

I have mine installed under the dash. It hooks to the pedal linkage, and is a tee-handle twist lock type control cable. Kinda simple set-up. I didn't want more stuff running thru fire wall, and/or a long cable. If you look under your dash at the pedal rod, you'll get the idea. I seldon use it driving, but it helps on a few rocky uphills. I mainly use it to either make the alt.or AC work better when parked.
