Depends on how original loooking you want your Jeep. If you're just worried about it "fitting," then '55-'75 tubs are interchangeable with one another, and '76-'83 are also interchangeable. The frames changed with the '76 AMC redesign, so body mount locations are different from that model year and up. There are many different cosmetic differences between eras, but what I listed should "fit." Hope that helps.

Sorry, missed the PTO question. Also depends on year. It would be easiest to install a PTO if you have a pre-'72 JEEP (CJ2/3/5/6) with a D18 t-case. There is a PTO port directly behind the tranny output shaft that will allow you to run a PTO straight to the back.
