Axle Identification?

How can you tell which axle is under your Jeep?

Is there a data plate? If someone says that they have a Dana 30 up front and a 44 in the back, how can you tell by looking at them?

The look, shape/size/diff cover of the axle. After a bit you can just look and know.

Also click on this link...http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tj-l...ion-50307.html

It'll help out a bit.

Look at the link Tim provided. The shape of the diff can determine what diff it is.
