Is this an AA divorced Dana 300?

I can't figure out what this is, not being very well versed in Jeep. It looks like a Dana 300 with an advance adapters divorce kit but google is letting me down right now.

Dana 21 divorced at first glance but at second its a Dana 20 with a AA divorced kit. Dana 300s have an aluminum output shaft housing while the 20s are cast iron.

I've never seen such a kit, seems odd to me.

A good clue is the "texas" style bolt pattern on the input mating surface.

That's shared between the spicer 18 and 20 cases - but the spicer 20 case has the rear output inline with the input, whereas the 18 has the rear output offset and inline with the front output.

It could be simular to the 300 mounted on a T-18 like those used in some Scouts one year. I think those had a Texas pattern also.

Looks like a T-case set up to be mounted behind another t-case to double (tripple?) your gear reduction. Would need to be in a jeep or something.

Did some 4X4 have a seperate T-case at one time?

Those configurations were used by company's like Wolverine and others doing 4WD conversions on mini trucks in the late 70's and 80's time frame.
