Pictures are not working. Try Photo bucket.
I believe all the 44s are the same (exept the Rubicon) as far as the ring and pinion. I am not sure how that disconnect works. Maybe you can make it work with your current set up. I would think you could get a one piece axle to replace it and put a block off plate to get rid of the disconnect. Not sure if you would need another seal though.
Sorry really not much help.

I wouldn't both trying to use that axle- PIA to work with, and they didn't have hubs.
Dana44s are abundant around here, wrecking yards usually want $150-200 for a complete axle (and they remove it)
