    If you mean a PTO winch (power take off), it works off the transfer case. They were original equipment, and you get them whereever you can find them! (they are prized!).

    Yes. With some variations for the different models, mostly in the driveshaft.

    Most likely not.. (OK more like 99.9% not)...

    The PTO gearbox bolts on to the sidecover of your transfer case, has either a single driveshaft flange pointing towards the front or one towards the front and one towards the rear. I'm not sure a the auto's ever had a PTO winch, more like the Toyota electric winch (rebadged Warn)...

    The PTO gearboxes are t/c specific, there are several types for the split case and the same one for all the older one-piece 3&4 speed cases... the just use a different PTO gear in the t/c (10spl & 16 spl.)
