I have just purchased a 1977 Cherokee -- the tech section had little info on this Jeep. It has a 360 V8, three speed trans and both front and rear axles appear to be Dana 44. What is transfer case, transmission and axles? Did this jeep have Dana 44?

'77 TSM sez the 3 speed is a T-15A and would come standard with a model 20 xcase. I had a '75 Waggy and it had 44s front and rear and I think your '77 should also, I'm not sure when they went to the model 20 rear in these trucks.
