Identification tips?

A buddy and i arelook for some used dana 44's at junk yards and wherever, and i was wondering if there are easy ways to tell if it is indeed a 44 or if it is something else. i know what the diff cover generally looks like, but i can never be completely positive with just that. Is there any extra bracing on the pumpkin, stamps, anything?

If you want more, there are many-a-posts awaiting your "search" criteria. Otherwise, this should hold you over.

There is an article in the currant issue of 4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazine on page 90 that is titled Axle Spotters Guide which may be help full.

Don't use that spotter's guide when looking for a Dana 44. The picture that they show is actually a car version of the GM 12-bolt. Don't even get me started on that article because it has mistakes all over the place!

<font face="Comic Sans MS">This seems to be a pretty good axle guide, not really sure if it's accurate for the D-44 though... I'm sure someone can tell you if this guide is better than the other one...</font>
