Yj 78-79 hp d44 f250 gvw?

I'm looking at getting an F250 HP Dana 44 to slowly build for my Jeep.
I keep seeing a question pop up when I ask for one...is the GVW 3800 or 4500.
Is there a difference in the axle?

The 4500 axle is the dana 60, witch as you know was used in the F-250 camper special and the snow fighter. Thats were I think the confusion is coming from.

Just order parts for a HP dana 44, well of course from a Ford 44

The snow fighter was d60 4.10 gearing. Camper special is an f150 with front leaf springs and f250 hp44 with five lug outer hardware.
The 3800# gvwr is the hp44 equipped. It came with a wide variety of motors, transmissions, cabs, and beds.
4500# is the d60 equipped "super duty" of the day.
