New (to me) jeep!

Whoop! whoop! I got my new jeep this weekend! It's a 97 sport 3.5 skyjacker lift brand new 33 km2's with crager soft 8's I believe. Has a D44 rear and d30 front 4.11 gears. Disc breaks all around. Front and rear lockers. Which I had no idea it had lockers until I got there. The POx2 did all the upgrades minus the wheels and tires so he didn't know much. I'm not sure what type of lockers it has is there any way of figuring it out without taking the diff cover off? has is
I had

Congrats! Whenever I buy a new used vehicle, I like to change all the fluids and that way I can can also inspect the differentials to see what's in there, plus check the condition of the teeth, etc. Kinda like opening a Christmas present, but messy'r.

I was just told on another thread it has a ford 8.8 in the rear. has 200,000 on body but 100,000 on engine. the POx2 put it in So i believe it was done right since all the other work he did to it. also sounds mechanically good etc.
