cj5 rear end

morning guys, i have a 1980 cj5 and need to change the gasket in the rearend. when we looked it up it showed only gaskets for a 10 bolt cover i have a 12 bolt. did the factory install 12bolts in some of them or has someone changed it out. i have no numbers on the axles any where. i just installed a 4in. susp. lift on it and everything under it looked stock. thanks for your help. by the way this is a great site

Re: cj5 rear end

Does it have a big round diff cover???? If so its a
AMC 20 !!!! I don't think they ever came with a 10 or 12 bolt rearend. Maybe a D44 but Im thinking they didnt use them in a 80 model. Could be wrong!!!! Someone could have swapped in a D44 from and would appear to be stock since other year jeeps used them!!!!!!
