A Dana 35 (with a plastic plug) or a Dana 44 with a metal one.

Easiest way to tell. Should be a tag bolted on that will tell you your gearing too.

Remembering back I think the serious majority of X's had a 35 in them.

All X models had Dana 35s.

Why not just look to see if it has a plastic or steel diff cover plug? By far, that's the easiest way to tell if you can't tell by looking at the shape of the differential cover.
When you have a choice, buy American.
