Default Looking for battery disconnect switch

I'm looking for a battery disconnect switch that I can use to shut off power inside or from back of my 1991 s10. I saw on a friends dragster that his switch is up front near nose with battery and has 2 push/pull cables, one to dash for driver and one to rear, he bought the dragster like that so he's not sure what kind it is, but the cables would be much to long for my s10. I like the idea of having one switch right by the battery and a cable that would run out the back of the truck and a cable that would run up into the cab somewhere that I could reach from seat. Does anyone know a set up like that or any other easy way to be able to cut off all battery power from drivers seat or out back like NHRA requires?

I made my own using a lever you can buy from Pro Werx at The Chassis Shop and a cable. Lokar makes what you are looking for also. The handle for inside mounts to the side of your shifter.

Will any kind of push/pull throttle type cable work for this?

Ideally it'll have a solid core as a braided core is pull only. I really like that Lokar 3in1 setup ! Lever on/off at the switch, rod push/pull, and cable push/pull. 3 different ways to kill power in a hurry.
