Need help identifying my rear axle

Alright so i'm a pretty big noob :P and was wondering if my rear axle is a D44 or not? I really think and hope it is but not positive. Any feedback would be awesome!

Awesome! I'm still trying to see what the last owner has modified or if most of it is stock except the axle. From my pictures does it look like everything is pretty much stock?

Just FYI, the axle is stock, it's just a heavy duty factory option

What appears to be webbing on the driver side of the housing is interesting.

Look on the lower left side of the punkin below the axle tube. There appears to be a gusset. Don't know why, never seen that before. Might want to put a really bright light down there and snap a picture from that angle.

I don't even know exactly what it is at this point. That's why a really good picture of that corner would help to see what's going on. Guesses are worthless. For all I know it's an optical delusion

This website talks about identifying your jeep Dana axles. Of course this is an ID of the original axle. Thought this might help.

x2 You have a d30 upfront unless you have a rubicon then they have d44s all way round. (the front d44 in a rubi isnt even a true d44)
