This is the company you are thinking about from Extreme 4x4. Whaley Enterprises there website is www.whaleyent.com
I heard good things from Northwest and I liked the looks of their shifter better.

Gonna throw a thought in here......Throughout history cable shifters have been a mantainence nightmare. While fine on compition rigs that see a lot of mantainence time, they have a bad habit of failing over time on daily drivers due to exposure to the elements(corrosion). From Sherman splitters to overdrives, cables have given way to mechanical, electric, and hydrolic linkages for this reason.

I agree, it would be hard to keep the water/dirt/sand/mud out of the cable. Linkages are the only way to go on a DD, IMHO.
