Transmission and rearend problem

I am on my first restoration and kinda stuck on what to do. Im building an 82 cj7 with the Dana 30 and amc 20. I pulled a amc360 out of an early 80s j10. And the transmission also. I finished the engine and now to the transmission. Iv researched the numbers on the transmission and believe it is a t176 and the transfer case is clearly labeled np205. But the yokes on the transmission and transfer case are complete opposite of the dana30 and amc20?... In other words if I bolted the driveshaft up. It would run diagonally across the jeep frame? and the same with the front driveshaft.. I would rather swap the transmission if I have to change something. Because I haven't done any work to it yet. The axles are rebuilt powder coated and bolted to frame...

And if I have to change transmission what should I go with?

CJ's are all Passenger side drop for the transfer case, the output shaft for the rear should be centered and the front on the right side of the vehicle. The 1980 and newer Full size Jeeps had the front output shaft on the Drivers side or left side of the vehicle. The rear should still be centered. Its really odd to have an NP 205 in Jeep, it was never used by the factory to my knowledge. Should have been a NP208, if so your CJ dana 300 should bolt in place of it on the T176 so your out puts would be correct. Pictures would help to confirm exactly what Transmission and Transfer case you have so that we can offer better advice.
Hope this helps.
