NP205 to stock shifter linkage

I am seeking advice on finding a shift linkage. First Here is the lay out. 1997 TJ with Ford 302 married C6 transmission, to an NP205 transfer case (solid set up). The issue is I am looking for a shift linkage to use the stock shifter to operate the NP205. Any ideas, information, or know adapters? I checked Novak and Advanced. I can't find anything that links the stock shifter to the transfer case.

you'd have to build it.

frankly i'd ditch the stock shifter for a cable operated unit in a heart beat.

It has a cable operated shift for the transmission. I need a linkage for the transfer case.

I agree w Ripper, cable, especially for a framed vehicle, in my opinion is the way to go. My 1st conversion 2 to 4wd was in 1985. I've done both linkage and recently I did cable on one of my XJ's. No worries about flex binding or clearances. I used aircraft braided stainless with wire wrapped cables that have zero fittings for greasing at each end. I got them from a aircraft surplus house 3 of them for $27.00. They are about 3ft long and glad I did! I have 3 sticks and they all shift smother than linkage!!
