Need help identifying a diff

2006 Grand Cherokee w 5.7 motor

Was originally thinking Dana 44 but the bottom of the cover doesn't seem to match the pics I've found online. The Chrysler 8.25 is close too, but again not a 100% match on what I've seen...

Looks like the Quadradrive axle (with the ELSD). If I remember correctly, it's a Chrysler 8.25 axle.

Appreciate the responses guys! Seems like its the QD II 8.25 rear end. I understand this is a Chrysler 8.25 in a modified housing to accommodate the ELSD?

Getting a whine from the rear end at speed while on the throttle, disappears when off throttle. Thinking pinion bearing...
