They didn't offer a Rubicon in 02, so it is wrong info

That's wrong info. My 02 Sahara came from the factory with a D44

Xpress Right, no gasket needed. They used a gasket in first generation D35's with retainer plates (identifiable by a screw in type fill plug, with a 1/4" square driver hole) but the newer D35's with C-clips use just black silicone to seal them up.

DirtyRob You do not need a gasket on the rear. I have always used black silicone and never had a leak. As far as the rear everyone is right, you have a Dana35 unless someone has changed it.

Here this link should help you out

As stated 99.9% it is a dana 35. Now before ya spend the money on the chrome diff cover.. please note that axle is considered weaker than weak, and adding shinny chrome cover, unless as a joke, would have most jeepers rolling their eyes. i would look into a ford 8.8 swap.. much better axle...

WranglerJR83 Also, you can contact your local dodge/jeep dealer with your vin number and they can give you a build sheet or tell you exactly what axle was installed from the factory on your jeep.

Sasquatch 4x4 Should be a d35. Unless it's Canadian. There should be a tag bolted to the dif cover and you should be able to look up the numbers on it to see what axle it is. And I would do chrome. Keep it back. Then you don't have to worry about keeping it too clean all the time

Timberwolf post a pic of the current diff cover and we can tell if the D35 is still there or has been swapped out

some Canadian YJs actually were available with rear D44s

Xpress There was one and only one rear axle on the Jeep Wrangler YJ's, all the way up until they made the Rubicon models in the TJ form, then they switched to Dana 44's.

You should have a Dana 30 FRONT and a Dana 35 REAR. I wouldn't waste a dime on polishing up a turd. Those axles are sufficient for stock Jeeps and stock Jeeps only, even then I broke mine on the road with 29" tires.

Post a picture though, it's certainly a possibility that someone swapped it out with another axle.
