    Rocky at Wide Open Design gives you an overview of the Winters Shifter and the differences in styles. He also gives you a run down of what's included when you order one and shows the inventory that Wide Open Design holds in stock. The Winters Shifter is commonly used in the Rock Bouncer and Rock Crawling community because of the ease of use that comes with a Winters Shifter. It does not jam and has no spring loaded levers. The Shifter is just an all around great addition to your Off Road Vehicle. You'll never go back to whatever it is you are using now if you try an Art Carr/Winters Sidewinder Shifter.
