Axle question from a noob

I bought my jeep in Dec, 2014. It's an '03 Sport, already lifted to 4.5" with 33"s. My question though is the best I can tell using a couple online charts in regards to the axles is I think it's Dana 44 front and Dana 30 rear, is that possible?

Thanks ya'll, I believe after looking closer you're right, it's a 30 and a 44, I'll double check to see if it's a rubber or steel fill plug too

There is no dana 30 rear, only 35 and 44. Your front will be a 30 unless the PO swapped it with a 44.

i think he meant axle shafts, which is a decent upgrade.

what tires and what size?
