The last thing I was going to look into was, put electric fans in, then use the old fan pully to drive a hydraulic clutch-pump on a (possibly custom) bracket. My reasoning: -Power steering is unaffected when using winch and vice versa -still stock PS parts etc -I heard that modern electric fans are more efficient than the old belt fan (any confirmation?)... -and are definitely better in low RPM situations. -systems are isolated, which i like. I don't want to mess with a working power steering setup. -A hydraulic/heavy equipment shop could consult and install it for you EDIT -and you get full, correct hydraulic flow and pressure to your winch (or snow plow ) EDIT or you could run a super-charger off of that pully to get a better low-end boost than a turbo.
