If you look under your Real Jeep, you will see a driveshaft coming
out from the place the Power Take Off would bolt. If you were given the
winch or other auxiliary power equipment, too you could move the rear
drive shaft down across from your front's:
Short answer- Nope.
The Dana 20 PTO mounts in place of the transfer case oil pan. Not a
well recieved design as they decrease ground clearance. The Dana 18
PTOs mount where "your" Dana 20 rear drive shaft come out, on the 18
the rear drive shft come out on the bottom of the case, in line with
the front drive shaft.
Just so you know if they're giving this to you "gratis" if the PTO is
the kind that hangs down with both front & rear facing shafts & one
shift lever they're worth ~$100. If its one of those with *Two* shift
levers it's worth ~$200 or so, (rarer, more desireable- I Want One I
Want One I Want One :)... I Can't Afford One :(. ).
The most common manufacturers of these things were Ramsey & Koenig.
It won't matter much to you since you can't use it anyhow, but if you
do pick it up just on spec, the Koenig PTOs came in two
configurations, one for CJs, the other for the wagons-trucks. The
difference is the angle they hang down at, the CJ models (#51 IIRC)
have a noticeable "notch" in the case to clear something on the frame.
If the PTO is a "straight" model 18H (generic description, everybody
built virtually identical cpoies of these things) with only a rear
output shaft they're common as dirt & worth about the same
its coming with the rear three point hitch gear reduction box and/or
flat belt drum pulley. Those gear boxes alone go for upwards of $300.
Do a Google on "Agri Jeep" , "Koenig Winch" or "Ramsey PTO" if you
would like more info.
