Default 700R4 NP231C Shifter Linkage?

I am installing a 700R4/NP231C combo into my Jeep with a Small Block V-8. I don't have any of the shift linkage that was on the transmission from the factory.

Is there an after market kit out there for this that will work for both the 4 wheel drive shifter and aftermarket floor shifter?

I do not believe you will find a combination unit like that. On my YJ I used the transfer case shifter and linkage from a late 80's S10 Blazer. I fits like it was made to go in a Jeep and works well. For the transmission shifter I used a 91 Camaro shifter with a parts store cable. I plan on switching to a Winters shifter soon. I wish I would have just spent the money on the Winters to start with. It took a fair amount of fab and tweaking to get the Camaro shifter to work and it does not provide positive control when manually shifting lower gears.

Not sure about the combo, but like FyrFyr did, I did the same S-10 231C linkage and it fits great. I also used the Camaro shifter assembly and control switch to activate my backup lights. May also use it for neutral safety switch or lock up when and if I ever do that. I did make a new floor plate to replace the stock YJ one out of .06" sheet metal, bent it with my home made break, welded some 1/4"-20 nuts to the bottom for the floor shifter to sit on. I then used a 99 blazer shift cable to hook the two ends up.
