Rare Dana 20 Front Output PTO Kennewick, Wa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Transfer Cases This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was listed at $900.

For several weeks we’ve been confused about this PTO. Brian wrote last night, “John from R&P 4WD finally figured out what it was. It is a very rare dana 20 front output PTO for cj5 built by Koenig. It is extremely heavy duty and very well built. This one looks to be in great shape, just dirty.”

Brian also has a model 100 winch. The PTO and winch would be $1400. He also has a recently rebuilt model 51j pto to go with the winch, for the guys with Dana 18 t case. Same price.”

    Hi Nathaniel,

    I’m pretty sure he sold it. I’ll double check with Brian.

    does anyone know if this can be put on a dana18? running rear pto off the round port to farm hitch want to use one like this (i have one) to power the winch in front, anyone know?

    It’s been a few years since I’ve messed with transfercases. I think it would depend on the number of teeth on the PTO gear and whether it would mesh with the ratios on a Dana 18 (which has at least three different gear ratios).

    Twice I have swapped Dana 18 gears into a Dana 20 (seems the case needs a little grinding to make this work). If a person put Dana 20 gears into a Dana 18 housing (never tried this) maybe then the 67L PTO would work?

    holy moly what a disaster, in the time since my last post i have ripped apart five different transfer cases four dana18’s and the dana20 that i have… i have given up completely, ALL four dana18’s are different in one way or another not to let one piece or the other exchange unless you use all innards from one in the other. i did find one gear in one 18 that had same number of teeth and got momentarily excited until i realized the pitch angle wasn’t a match. last resort was swap out all lower shaft components from the 18 to the 20, again no go because of shifter fork issues. then someone tells me i need early bronco gears and that would fix my problem, so i bought a 1967 bronco dana20… took it apart… long story short of the matter it had even yet another different set of gears tha didn’t mach any of the rest of the pile of crap. i had had enough at that point and took all this cast iron garbage and scrapped it all including the axles and the jeep. i have better things to do with my life and family than putting parts where they were not intended to go… i went and bought an electric winch which costed way less than i spent buying old worn out cast iron parts and spending countless hours cleaning only to hit snags at every turn all directions. what a waste of time, and also for anyone reading all the copy pasted miss information out there don’t bother with this if you are convinced this is easy as it’s spread all over the net, it is not and you will never find that majic gear because it doesn’t exist. even if it did it would change how far the gear hangs down from edge of pto opening and cause it to be loose or jammed tight. waste of time folks. sorry for long winded post, this is for info purposes so the next guy attempting this doesn’t have to learn the hard way…

    Hi William,

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve had some much trouble with this and that someone mislead you regarding the Bronco gears.

    To make the Dana 20/18 gears swap you need a particular set of spicer gears and the rear Bronco gear. Each of the spicer gears has a number on the side. This link details the correct gear numbers to use:

    All you need from the Bronco case is the rear sliding gear. The gear is available by itself here:

    This is a schematic to show how things shift:

    My dual shifter setup:

    I hope this information helps. Feel free to email me at if you have more questions.

    – Dave
