Re: T176/D300 or T18/D20
...for me it depends on whether this Jeep is DD, trail only or both - together with how hardcore and where I plan to wheel ...how big tires and what engine.
Transfer cases are kinda a wash... but since they aren't easily interchangeable I guess you get what you have. No big, right?
T176 gets nod for DD with slick shifting and 4 useable gears while zipping around town and trail playing.
T18 gets nod for trail oriented and powerful engines because trans is more HD and super crawl granny gear for inching over rocks or trees or stuff - plus powerful engines don't so much need lots of gear ratios to maintain their powerband for any speed.
