Not aware of whether one was offered or not, but it is a relatively simple matter to construct one. Use a micro switch from Radio Shack, attach it to a bracket fabricated from an aluminum strip. Mount the bracket so the reverse arm on the shifter contacts it when in reverse.

I have a B&M shifter. It came with the neutral safety switch but the back up light switch had to be purchased separately. I just put a toggle switch on my dash to turn them on.

Hurst/Mr.Gasket makes a switch (pn 248-0003) for the Competition Plus shifters that may work with an Indy Shifter, maybe with a little fabrication.

You can ask Hurst at: http://go.mrgasket.com/AskTechFormHu...aspx?BrandID=2

If you use a switch on the dash, be sure you use a pilot light. Otherwise you'll look silly driving around with your backup lights on. You also might be tempted to use them as tailgater medicine, which sometimes works real well.
