    i want to build a k5 blazer. how hard is it to run a front pto winch? i already have the nv4500 and forward/reverse pto, just need to know can it be done off a nv4500? or do i have to run it from the transfer case?

    i tried a search and so far am unsuccessful in finding out my answer

    I have a front mounted pto winch on my k10. I robbed the winch and driveshafts off a parts blazer I bought. The winch is not in the center of the bumper but a few inches to the left. The driveshaft has 4 u-joints in it and it is a very tight fit. I run my pto from the t-case and use the transmission to run the forward and reverse. my pto is a single speed with no reverse.

    My pto is not on the truck at the moment because of a trans/tranfers swap, but you're welcome to take a drive out here and take a look. I still have the winch and driveshaft all on the truck, just the pto is off.

    I hope this helps, if you have any more questions let me know and I will do my best to help you out. :thumb:
