Muncie M-21 in place of a T-176 4 speed on CJ5

I was just wondering if it was possible or if there was a conversion kit to replace a T-176 4 speed with a Dana 300 transfer case with a Muncie M-21 or M-22. My CJ5 has a 258 straight 6 engine. Any information or past experiences anyone has with this will help me greatly. Thanks in advance.

There is no real advantage to this swap. Advanced adapters used to sell adapters for the car transmissions to the dana 20 transfer cases, I see these at the swap meets all the time no one can unload them anymore. For a 258 the T-176 is a good transmission. If you have money to burn, do it right the first time and do the granny low ford T-18 swap, or if you have tons of money to burn then go for a NV4500.

good luck, jjc

One of the transmissions in my garage is the M-22 with a Dana 20 adapter. Let me be polite[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], the M-22 is not for sale. I used the M-22 in my 80 CJ5 when I lived in Jacksonville. I liked the close ratio M-22 in MUD! I now live near Portland Oregon, and my 80 CJ5 has a Ford T-18. My 80 CJ5 is small block chevy powered.

In my humble opinion, I think the T-176 and Dana 300 are a very good combination for a Jeep that is on the street more than the dirt.
