So what is the difference with the 80-82 dana 44's, and the 85-91 dana 44's?

Some '82-84 (have heard that even a few in '85) had the vacuum disconnect, but not all. Any non-disconnect front D44 from 80-91 is going to be the same. I have yet to see anyone explain why the two groups are broken out.

Did Dana 30 axles ever have manual hubs from the factory? I'm trying to figure out what front axle my '73 Wagoneer has. The wheels have 5x5,5" bolt pattern and the axle has manual hubs.

Its a 5x5.5" closed-knuckle Dana 44 with drum brakes. Perfectly normal to have manual hubs.

I think I'm nuts

I am a newb to the jeep scene so excuse my ignorance. I've read a lot on this topic and have just become more confused. I own a 1987 grand wagoneer. I need to replace the bearings and seals in my rear. The supply house (BJ's) says I have a Dana 44 but I can see its an AMC 20. 12 bolts with a "B" gearing code. What I have read says the "B" code was for the wide track but mine is narrow (50 1/2"). It should have a "BB" code for narrow.?Someone could have replaced the rear with the AMC but I'm just skeptical. I've seen on the Morris 4x4 site where my truck came with Dana and AMC both but in 1985 not 1987. Any ideas?

I have seen a couple 1986 Grand Wagoneers with AMC 20 axles but never a 1987. Chances are someone swapped it in.
