If it has a rubber fill plug, it's a D35. A metal screw, it's a D44. D44's were optional.

Dana 44!!! That is awesome! Im so excited, now i have an extra $1500 to spend on something else!!

What are the perks of having a Dana 44 though, i know i can have bigger tires, but what are all of the positives, and negatives?

It can handle 35 inch tires with a locker. Although, I'd probably run chromoly shafts if I needed 35" tires.
