    T4 or T5, stay away from the SR4!!

    Depends on your driving style, the T4 and T5's are aluminum, and came behind the 258's and 304's. Some say they aren't great behind a V8.

    The 176 would be a better option, IMO.

    But, that said, I've abused my T4 pretty good, and haven't had any problems with it.

    I've broken 2 rear axle shafts, twisted 3 driveshafts into pretzels, and sheared the rear output shaft off the D300.

    Tranny is still going strong!

    I have a T18 and behind my 304. My roomate is using an np435 with a 300 adapter and he loves how low his first gear is.

    T-18. That is what is behind the built AMC 360 in my CJ. You won't regret it. 2nd would be a T-176, and lastly a T-15 (only a 3 speed though) but is stronger than some of the others.

    AVOID the T4 or T5 as these are not strong enough behind a 258, let alone a 360.

    Thanks guys
    Got from a local guy

    Borg Warner T-18 (77-79 Jeep CJ or Ford Truck) or Spicer NP435 (Ford Truck). Both Ford choices will need an adapter kit and transmission work to be able to use in your Jeep.

    Avoid the T-4 and T-5 like the plague - they are both Light Duy boxes and are easily destroyed. Like other's have said, the 360 is too much for either one of them. Because you're putting this in a CJ-5, you're going to be limited by transmission lengths. That said, the T-18 will suit your needs nicely. It is a Heavy Duty box. The T-176 is a Medium Duty box that will also be a decent combinaiton with your engine. I had the T-15 behind the 360 in my CJ-5, and while it was strong as hell, I was always reaching for another gear.
