Hope that's a Scout bullgear on the back of the T-18.  The Dana300 bullgear is different than the Dana20, and the Scout is unique.  I built 2 Jeeps over the years with that combo, and it's the lowest geared, shortest combo you can get.  My last Jeep had 4:88 gears in the diffs, and with that combo, low/low was 80:1, worked great with 37" tires.  Look into the Currie Dana300 twin stick unit.  It gives you a 2-low, and front wheel drive option.

There was a guy making a T-18 adapter for the Jeep Dana300 that used the Scout bullgear.  He quit making them years ago when the supply of Scout bullgears dried up.  I've come across a couple of the Scout 300s without the bullgears, but they're worthless without them.
