Jeep division of Chrysler uses the same Saginaw box that Chevy uses (Jeep used to buy tranies and engines from Chevy as well so there are a lot of parts that interchange even though Jeep made their own head). Additionally Ford uses Saginaw steering gear boxes on their intermediate cars.

Comes from a desire not to reinvent the wheel when there is a cheap solution to a common problem.
