I've got a '77 CJ-5 with the T-18 wide ratio tranny that came that way from the factory. '77 technical service manual says it was an option on 5s, 7s, Cherokees, J-10, and J-20 trucks. I'm under the impression that '77-'79 model year CJs were pretty much the same. The Jeep Owners Bible written by Moses Ludel says that the T-18 was available in '72-'79 CJs. I think your friend the "old bastid" is going to eat crow on this one. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
