The lockup uses various sensors to decide when to lock.... TPS, water temp, speed....

Re: 70series prado auto

yes from my observations the 1UZ auto has a longer output shaft so will need either swapping or cutting down to accept the adaptor / extention housing from a factory auto / split transfercase.
Phil Clarke at Force 4 runs the 1UZ in his Prado.... he would have some good insights for you.

Re: Fixing 80series winch stall issue

Nice work, have you tested the new brake yet?
I take it you checked the wiring and the solenoid to confirm its not a power supply issue to the motor causing it to stall?

But love the Kiwi ingenuity !
