Do you have a year?
Have you googled the year and checked to see if the picture matches what you have in there? Stock 4 speed transmissions would be T98/18, T176, and SR4.
If you don't have one of these, then post a pict of it so we can have a look.

While the 150 is a good transmission, I would consider it a downgrade. What are you trying to do? Is the transmission bad? They are rebuildable and the 176/300 combo is a great pairing.

I'm trying to fix the jeep for as little money as possible as I'm on a budget trying to buy a house. All my friends are going riding and I can't go without my jeep

Do yourself a favor and take a deep breath....
Do a bit of troubleshooting. Is it the transmission? Clutch plate break? Transfer case? Rear axle? Bad driveline slip yoke?
Get a friend to put it in gear while you check the drive lines. Are they spinning? Will it move in four wheel drive?
Drop the t case inspection plate and check to see if there is an issue in there.
If it is the trans, pop the lid and take a look inside. It is rare to loose all the gears.

Okay trouble shot it there a gear in the very front of the transmission missing all kind of teeth and is rounded off and the bearings are shot. I bought a t150 with d20 I was told that this will go right in with exception of drive and maybe bell housing ?

you will have to reset the front and rear drivelines as the T150/D20 is shorter than your current setup. By the time you spend the money to rebuild drivelines and other little things to fit the new set you could have rebuilt the T176. Not to mention the set you have now has a better low range than the T150/D20...
