T18, D300 and 360

Can get a T18, Dana300 (twin stick) and 360 (stock) for $1k. You think this is a good deal? I talked to the guy down from $1250

Figure 300-400 for the engine, 150 for the tcase 125 for the transfer with no adapter, forget how much the t18 d300 adapter is.

D60 is pry 150 radiator with fans 300

So I'd say go for it

The adapter is almost 300.

Dana 60 you could get 200 for.


Dont buy it. Give me his number. Now I just have to find 1k.

T-18 with or without the granny first? What, 6.32:1 or something close. Everybody wants one of those (including me) but there was also a non-granny T-18, which isn't so desireable...

I have the non granny and its pretty much a heavier duty t176 I personally liked the 176 better the syncros seemed to "sync" better, its a more refined transmission. IMO if its not the granny I wouldn't want the t18 but I'm living with one.

I don't want to sound like a know a lot about CJ stuff cause I don't and no offense to you, I don't want to argue, but it really seems like people on here say things should be cheaper than they really are. I run across deals a lot and if I could find a T-18 with granny gear for $125, I would be on that in a heartbeat.

Same with the d300 for $150. Usually see those go for $250 to $300. Just saying everyone says what stuff goes for when the find a good deal, not really what seems realistic. Could be wrong though, wouldn't be the first time.

I was just trying to give him prices for the best deals I've found over the past 5 years. So his worst case he could expect at least that much. IMO he's making off like a bandit.

Well, I haven't looked around much, not looking to swap right now, but I've got $200 right now for anybody that has a good condition T-18a with the granny, if it's the Jeep input shaft and doesn't need an a$$-load of modification...

You will want to ask him what version of the Dana 300 it is. The Scout Dana 300 does not require an adapter and is typically found in the $600 range (with the proper bull gear included) without a twin-stick conversion.

The reason this is important is because the Scout Dana 300 does not share all its parts with the Jeep Dana 300. 32-spline HD outputs are available for the Scout Dana 300, but if you ever break the rear half of the case you're pretty much railroaded into buying another one since not even the Stak Replace-a-case accepts Scout Dana 300 internals.
