Can I add a PTO for ranch work to an \'80 CJ7?

Looking into starting a Ranch on my father in-law's place in Alaska. I have a 1980 CJ7, which I've used for wheeling in the past, but wondered if there was some way to hook up a PTO so I could run farm type equipment from my Jeep?
Yes, he has a tractor, but you know the Jeep way...it would just be more fun with my old "Snort" running the show.
Thanks for any help,

PTOs are available for D20 transfer cases and for T18 transmissions. The transfer case PTO is a better option because shifting the transmission shifts the PTO. Somebody had a D20 PTO for sale a few months ago, and they pop up on E-Bay from time to time.

I think he has a D300 though.

I thought that might be the case. A complete profile would help. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

The only reason I knew is that I also have an '80. I think that was the first year for the D300.

Thanks for the replies - looks like it's a no go, I guess, because I do have the Dana 300. I'll have to fill out that profile again. I used to have everything updated with my info, but I haven't been here in a long while, and they changed the board around some.
Ok, well, thanks for that info, and I suppose I'll just have to do everything on a tractor. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
