Those of you who know please tell us again what years did the cj come stock with a wide ratio t-18 tranny. Is there a single reference where this type of info is located?
Thanks

1977-1979. You can also find info on the main off road page. There is a chart of cj drivetrain components.

Re: cj t-18 years

Ive heard and read tht it was 77-79 BUT ive had more than a couple of folks say that they have found factory installed ( presumed of course) T18s in those year ranges with the 4:1 first gear, so be careful!

there was a factory CJT18 in a Junkyard in MO a few months back for $450

I passed on it when I found a fullsized T18 for $100

Re: cj t-18 years

The T-18a (6.32:1 first) was available in CJ's from '76-'79, but was only available with the 258. It was also not available in California at all.

My source in the Technical Service manual and another book, called "Jeep 4x4 Performance Handbook" by Jim Allen.

Re: cj t-18 years

What do you mean by a "full size t-18"?

Re: cj t-18 years

from a full sized jeep ( waogneer, cherokee, Jeep truck)

there is a guy outthere who swears he has a factory installed 304T18 combo, says he bought it new that way.

I cant remmeber his email, but ive talke to him a time or two.

you never know, dont go by what the books say, if your going to drop your money on a tranny, count the revolutions to make sure it the ratio you want, AND make yourself very fameliar with the tranny so you get the right one.

there some differences in the T18s Ive messed with, the Jeeps are differnt from the Ford versions.

you cant learn too much about this, especially if your trying to save some coin.

Re: cj t-18 years

I am in the process of installing a T-18 on my CJ-7(so far so good). It came from a 74-75 J-series pickup with Dana 20. Now the good thing is that it came with 1" spacer between the tranny and the bellhousing. This adapter makes posible to use your existing bellhousing, all its needed is drill to holes(9/16s) on the bellhousing and the rest is a bolt on swap. I still dont know if I need to change the driveshafts but they look very close, so maybe I will get away with that to. And yes this tranny is a wide ratio and I was hoping to get a close ratio. I probably finish the installion tomorrow so if you have any question you can contact me via email.

Re: cj t-18 years

The T18 (wide ratio) was available behind the 304 in a CJ in 1979. They are hard to find but I have seen them. Otherwise, they only came behind the 258.

Good Luck!

Re: cj t-18 years

Hey, I'm just going by what the manual says, they have been known to be wrong before, like the factory T-176 behind the 258 in the '87 YJ. I'm sure there are always exceptions, AMC never knew what they were doing, which is why there are so many combinations out there.
