Maybe aftermarket, but unlikely especially if it's not a current HD model. I've seen it on a 2001 2500HD but very rare. It has dash mounted controls. It would probably have to have an allison transmission. Just below, where the transmission rear output shaft comes out, there will be an attached pump with High Pressure lines coming out of it. If there is a cover plate there instead it might mean it's capable of having one but this is one of those questions like "If you have to ask, you probably don't have it"

How do gears to drive pto go in the manual transmission

If your transmission is PTO ready, there will be a plate on the side of the tans where the PTO bolts to it. The PTO will have a gear that goes into the transmission that is driven off of a gear on the input shaft. You will be able to engage and disengage the PTO by a slip gear in the PTO itself.

Will a pto pump off a 89 ford zf5 trans work on a 94 dodge nv4500.

a pto pump is an after market unit and is designed to fit any gear box
the problem s you will be experiencing is the adapter plate used to get the correct gear mesh for the pto gear and the counter shaft gear and if the pitch of the pump is the same as the counter shaft gear( may have to change the pto gear )
before you do the conversion , talk with a shop that fits pto units to discuss any likely problems and they will have access to anything needed to be successful in the fittment

We had several, identical gearbox failures on several Merceds Benz 1823 trucks. Each time the PTO pump was ripped off and the bell housing destroyed whilst the vehicle was driven on a straight road. We...

There is a gear that is in constant mesh in the PTO with a gear in the cluster shaft of the gear box. Fitting a PTO is a critical operation as there are shims between the PTO flange and the gear box housing to ensure correct teeth clearance . IF this clearance is not enough then the gears bottom out and jam prevention proper lubrication and rotation. Also it is vital that the teeth pitch of the PTO gear matches the pitch of the gear box gear as this will cause the PTO to be pushed of the side of the box.
