is this information correct....
http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums.../t-146068.html

i do have a 3.73 i see that stamped right on the cover. But I am not sure about the other numbers... Any help is greatly appreciated!

I am so excited to finally be a Jeep Owner! Now I just have to get rid of my pos Ranger....

Thanks again!

Willie

can you really tell the difference between the rubber and the metal? Just making sure... My plug feels really hard. But who knows how hard a plastic differential plug could be? Why is there even a plastic plug doesn't sound very strong. Even my Ranger had metal plugs....

Thanks for the help!

Rubber plug just pops in and out. Metal will be threaded.

Sorry to get in on your post. My plug screws in and it is a 98 sahara. If I understand you correctly that means I have a Dana 44?

If you can't tell the plug material you can go by shape

Keep in mind the front Dana 30 axle has a metal plug. All you can tell is if it's rubber it's a Dana 35.

When talking about the rear axle, yes a plug that screws in means it is a Dana 44.

The front Dana 30 also has a screw-in fill hole plug.
