What the heck is this thing?

Hey guys, I've been on the interweb looking at tjs for sale, and I came across this one. It's got a bunch of after market crap installed ( lift kit, wheels and tires, steering stabilizer... etc ) and I see this thing on the shifter

. I have no clue what it is, it's the first time I've seen a picture of whatever it is.
What is it? I see the locker mods are done, so I'm guessing it has something to do with off-roading.

If that's used while driving on a rough trail it'd be very hard to keep a steady hand while holding an arm in the air to adjust it. If it's just used for raising the rpms while parked for winch use or OBA that would work fine.

I installed my hand throttle on the gear shift hand strictly for use as a throttle control on rough trails that would otherwise cause me to bounce my foot on the gas pedal which can cause drivetrain breakage from shock loading. Placing it on the handle gives the hand a place to rest on to hold it steady when things get bumpy for smooth throttle control.

I had one on both my 5-speed and then new automatic after converting to it. For me and my non-talented right foot it made a world of difference where smooth throttle control on an extremely bumpy trail was concerned. :)

I actually had one on my CJ mounted to the shifter, never tried the bicycle lever. I use it when winching and I don’t have any problems adjusting it on rough trails, it has a very fine adjustment so you don’t over throttle if your hands not steady. I rest my hand on the center dash bezel and adjust with my thumb. Everyone is different though.
