    I think both ORD and NW make kits, not sure who else, I made my own. Do some searching/reading in the vendor section and you might find more...

    Chevy NP205 Twin Stick Shifter


    NP205 Twin Stick Shifter ? This is my twin shifter kit for a NP205 transfer case. The kit is used to allow independent control of the high and low range of the front and rear axles. The shifter kit is a direct bolt on to a NP205 (1973 and newer) transfer case that is mated to an SM465 transmission. The kit includes a new greasable mounting bolt made especially for the twin stick. It will also fit the TH350 and TH400 transmission combinations. The shift handles occupy approximately the same area as your original shifter however some floor board trimming may be required on some vehicles depending on model and lift conditions. It is very likely that your shift rails will have to be deburred to allow my shift arms to be slipped over them and pinned in place.
    ?
    Installation:
    1)????? Remove the existing shifter hardware.
    2)????? Place the actuator attachment over the appropriate shift rail as shown in the pictures. Note that the shift rails may need to be filed or sanded to allow a smooth fit as the rails may have burrs on the outside diameter from years of use.
    3)????? Align the holes and drive the roll pins in place ? highlighted in the picture by a red box.
    4)????? Attach the shift arms with your original shifter mounting bolt. Make sure the shift arm pins are in the slot in each actuator attachment.



    Price: $135.00

    You could buy the new rails, and make your own twin stick set up out of two stock shift levers. Or you can grind your own rails and make your own sticks and save the $ It took me about two hours to rebuild the t-case (np205) and grind the shift rails. I spent another two hours making the two sticks fit and function. The total cost was $131.00 ($121.00 for the rebuild kit and $10.00 for the extra shift lever). Works Great:laugh:
