Options:

1) divorced t-case, like some versions of the np205

2) buy a np435 from a 4wd Ford and use stock adapters and t-cases

3) buy an aftermarket adapter and to hook up to something like a Dana 300

Here is some background info on #2 and #3. They want to sell you #3, but give some good background on what it was used in originally, and that may help lead you to what all they used it to choose #2.
