Thanks to blupupher for these pics of the different axles available on Jeeps. He has a nice Jeep Site. So check that out.

This shows the tag from the factory where you can find the gear ratio. Both front and rear axles have these. You will find the gear ratio numbers 3.07, 3.55, 3.73, or 4.10 some with and some without the decimal point.


The next shot shows the D44 on top and D35c on bottom. The main differences that distinguish them are the cover shape and fill plug used. The D44 is shaped like a sideways apple and has a threaded fill plug. Some of the newer versions also have a threaded drain plug on the pinion side making oils changes much neater. The D35c has an oval shape to it and it uses a rubber fill plug.


Of the 2 the D44 is the prefered axle to have. The D35c is a fine axle that has limitations. There are lots of aftermarket parts out there to beef it up. The D44 also has its limitations but it will work fine for most with the exception going to the hardcore crawlers or V8 crowd.

If anyone has a good pic of a D30 front axle, PM it to me and I will add it to this also.

Thanks
Todd

Here are some photos of axles if you're going shopping at the local boneyard. Not a lot of info, but it'll help you figure out what's what if you're not sure.
