Hi Pedro,
Try Mark's 4wd Adaptors in Melbourne.
I know he developed an overdrive for later cruisers.
Also do a Google for Fairey Winches. They mad the Landrover units and I believe did make them for Landcruisers as well.
There's a third outfit I can't for the life of me remember the name.

Landcruiser HDJ78,
Grey hair is hereditary, you get it from children. Baldness is caused by watching the Wallabies.

Much easier to get a later 5 speed box and transfer out of a later vehicle.
If you wish to retain the transmission mounted handbrake then the rear extension housing can be swapped between the two transfers as long as the ages are similar.
Alternatively you can get the rear axle assembly to go with the transfer case with the handbrake.
