Yes, all JK's have the d44 rear.

Yes, though you should know that it's different than the Rubicon 44. The Rubi rear isn't any sturdier or anything, it is just designed slightly different to accommodate the factory lockers. So, for example, 4.10 gears remove from a Rubi would not fit in your axles.

Well, I had a go around with my shop because my 4.88 gears that they installed were Rubicon gears. Even had the RUB in the stock number. They assured me that Yukon said that the gears were the same for both. No problems so far but not sure why they have two different part number for Rubi and non rubi if they are the same but oh well. But the install kit used was for a non rubicon. So I assume the bearings may be different but the gears the same.
