I also frequent a Wrangler TJ forum - there is a thread similar to this there and it has 1,000s of responses. You can get ideas and learn from what others are doing with their toys - so, lets see if it works here...

I'll start.
I installed the 1/4 turn throttle from Lloyds. I did not find it as easy to put in as some others...getting the nut and lock nuts loose was easy. But when I took the throttle assembly apart there was a bottom piece not discussed in the video and another screw under the bottom plate that needs to come out. Also if you do this mod - cut off all the zip ties on the cables/wires so you can get enough slack to get the throttle handle off the bars. Getting the cable stops in their holes was an interesting process - it was awesome when i did, but it took 10 minutes of fiddling. All told it took about 35 minutes for me to get the whole thing done including re-zip tying - I could do it alot faster now that I learned the process.

How do i like it? ALOT!
There is no slop in my throttle now nice and tight from turn to end of turn - the best part is it got rid of my "driveline slop" I thought that maybe my belt was loose or something else...now when I release the throttle and re-engage the throttle there is no lurch at all. Like when going down a hill and the engine breaking stops and pushes the bike forward it is tight and smooth as is using the throttle in low speed maneuvers - the mod was worth it just for this improvement! thumb up
I also like how the throttle feels alot more than stock - it is a little more that half as far a twist from idle to full throttle - does not feel twitchy or sensitive - just right.
i highly recommend this mod!!
A heads up the part costs $19.99 - Witchdoctor wanted $21 to ship this little thing out :crzy:
Lloyds was $12 for shipping - still high for a 1 oz part that would ship USPS for $3...but that's the way it is - still worth it
Saturday the 4/12/21, went for hoot to the village of Loxton in the River Murray in South Australia, total distance cover woz 430 kilometers for the days hoot..................

2 quick and easy mods in this pic.
Leather wrap on the forks. I totally stold this idea :)
Painted the chrome headlight bezel black. I've been wanting to do this a long time. finally got around to it.
I am pleased with the outcome of both. I don't want a completely blacked out bike but I keep adding more a little at a time.

Leather is an interesting idea.

I found the Lucas Slick Mist quick detailer works great on leather to keep it waterproof and protected from UV rays. Particularly my latigo leather heat shields. I'm sure other products work equally well; this is just my personal preference. I use the Slick Mist on the entire bike; even the windshield. I do use MeGuiar's Hybrid Ceramic wax on the paint surfaces once or twice a year too. But for a quick slam, bam, thank you Ma'am cleanup before a ride the Slick Mist works great for me.

I use Lucas Slick Mist and the McGuiars Ceramic as well. Great combination and does not break the bank.
