Will a 1997 TJ axle fit my 1999 for sure?

I got a line on a Dana 44 with 4.10 gears in it from a salvage yard. It's from a 1997 Wrangler 4cyl, 5 speed with 102K miles on it. Will that bolt right up to my 1999 TJ 4.0L, auto? I would hate to buy a Dana 44 with 3.73 gears and have to pay several hundred $$ immediately to swap it over to 4.10 gears. Your help will be much appreciated.

If the donor axle has 4.10s and your TJ has 4.10s, it's a bolt on procedure.

If its from a 4cyl its not gonna be a D44 its a D35. Only 6 cyl engines had the option of the D44 and it only came with 3.73 gears. But all year TJ axles will bolt to any other year TJ.

jeeptj... your partially right.
the 4 cylinder jeeps NEVER came with d-44's in the rear, but the d-44's were offered in 3.55 ratios as well as 3.73 in 1997
unless the jeep had a 4.0 in it and either gambler or canyon wheels, theres no way it has a d-44.
and your also correct... any tj axle will fit any other tj.
any xj front axle will also fit in a tj....

Sorry, but the 3.73's didn't show up until 1998, the 3.55's were the only "optional" gear ratio in 1997. The stock on the 4 cyl was 4.10 though, and 3.08 on the 6 cyl.
