Help ID rear axle. Dana 44 = ??

I have an OEM service manual for '03-'06 Wrangler and it lists 2 rear axles. A 216RBI and a 194RBI.

I need to replace both wheel seals on the rear axle and the pinion seal. Instructions for both are different, never mind getting the correct parts.

I am leaning towards the 216RBI based on the hub appearance compared to the manual (I just did brakes on it). There is no picture for the 194RBI to compare it against.

Looks like it is going to be worse to do those than the rear main.

Additionally, my D44 on my 03 Rubi has a metal drain plug on the front of the diffs.
