The BIG draw back on the Jeep is that is a dated transfer case. There are very few components still available for the unit. Guessing it has a Low range unit (Shifter in the floor).
You can not run lock out hubs with the unit unless it has a part time conversion in it. That kit also allows you to use gear oil instead of the TCL (Special lube) in the unit.
Give the guys a call at Jims Off Road in Oak Ridge, TN. They might have some good used or rebuilt units around (865) 482-6912.

Dana 44s are not stock in either of those years of CJs. Might want to find out what they are from. That will make getting parts for them easier in the future.
