What does, “my trann shifter slides out of the shift forks” mean? Do you mean the pins pop out and the shifter comes out of the top. Common T176 problem. Push the pins back in and use a hose clamp to hold them.

I'd reccomend a Jeep World Class T-4/5 from Advanced Adapters, but they don't sell them any more. Like you, I would hope to find a nice T-176.

I think 4wd hardware sells a "repair kit" for the top of the shifter. Depending on what exactly is worn, and HOW worn it is this might be a fix. It seemed to help me when I had a T176 transmission.

I'd fight hard to keep the T176. It's actually a pretty good transmission, with the exception of the shifter. That is definitely the weak link.
