I know axle threads are old...

Be confirmed from years-old threads that my 05 Sport is lucky enough to have the D44 rear axle - the 35 and 44 in the rear are pretty easy to distinguish. Could I be lucky enough to have a 44 front as well? Seems there's less info available on this topic. Pic attached as long as the mobile app is as good as it seems to be:

The indentation to the driver's side of center does not continue all the way to the top.

Insight from the experts?

If I'm indeed lucky enough to have both, should I add lockers to my wish list? Not worth a couple thousand to me, but if I already have the axles, it could be a nice start to a Rubiclone...

I would say Dana 30. Im pretty sure the only tj's that came with Dana 44 front were the Rubicons.

That is a D30.

Either way the Tj d44 isn't that much stronger than the d30 and if your sticking to 33s I would lock it anyways. Even on 35s although you may want to switch to a hp30 later and add things like shafts u joints etc.

Thanks all! Buying used just makes me keep wondering what kind of fun surprises I'll get. The D44 rear was certainly a good one!

Yep, the Dana 30 just happens to have a strong resemblance to the Dana 44... you do have a Dana 30 up front. :)
