Dana 44 axle specs

I had a friend tell me some model dana 44's have an aluminum center (differential) housing. Anyone know what models those are and what year xj's they come off of? And what year xj's have I believe he said steel differential housing?

That was the D44A, I know it came on the Grand Cherokee but not sure what years.

I have nothing against a Prius, I just wish the drivers would peddle faster.

Yeah ZJ not XJ.

If you look in the ZJ stock specs or FAQ thread in the ZJ forum it may tell you.

Similarly if you go to the XJ or MJ forum under stock specs FAQ it will tell you what years/options had the D44. Even a very limited number of YJ's got D44 from the factory.
