Re: ATTN: Jeep\"N\" & any NP205 users.
No, the twin stick is just a "do it yourself" type thing. Making mine was easy, but you will need another stick. I have mine exposed now, and can make the twin stick linkage easily if you'd like me to. I can't help with the extra shifter though. I may have an outlet for the shifter/adapter bolt though, a longer one is needed for the conversion. I am assuming your SM465/NP205 setup looks like mine, if I remember right yours is a newer one with a slip-yoke on the rear of the transfer. Is the adapter between the tranny and transfer about 11" long? If so, I can make you the linkage, and probably get the shifter bolt, so all you'd need is the extra shifter and to put it all in place. I snagged a boot setup from an '89 Toyota truck (tranny and transfer) as the throw on both shifters is pretty long.
Never rebuilt the SM465, so I can't help, sorry. Man, that puppy's heavy though, be careful you don't drop it on something important.
