You can buy a kit, or use old thumb style bicycle shifter components with a cable linking to your throttle linkage. Most mount them on the shift rod for easy control of two things with one hand.

You might look at this

Re: Hand throttle

While at the auto parts store one day, I found a replacement throttle with cable for a lawn tractor. The cable is the right length to mount between the seats in my CJ. I haven't hooked it up yet, but it's an idea.
