Help ID a few ring and pinion sets

I have a couple ring and pinion sets I am trying to Id. When I got them they were already out the axles. I know for sure they are all jeep related.

The first two are 3.31 's and 2.73's. They slide on a amc 20 carrier and the bolt patterns match up. Am I safe assuming that they are amc 20 gears or do any other rear ends have the same bolt pattern? They have very few markings on them and none on the rings.

The 3.31's pinion reads CVA 4 4 13-43
The 2.73's pinion reads 15 41 1 TJV 7 01

The one I have no clue on is a set of 3.73's. Here is the bolt pattern




The ring gear reads 01 1199 Dana D 48144 P8L366 41 11 779
The pinion reads Dana 48665 N 02 41 11 V1L 555


I have searched goggle for the numbers on all three and struck out.

3.73 is possibly a dana 44 rear gear.

I would assume that they are D44 gears with the Dana markings on them. I've never seen a Dana/Spicer gearset made to fit an axle of another make.

So the next question is if they are a 44 ring and pinion will the fit any dana 44?

The oddball exceptions on D44s are Isuzu Rodeo, D44a from the Grand Cherokee, and Jeep JKs. Almost every other D44 is fair game.

I seem to remember him saying it was from a newer Cherokee. Any idea on where I can track down a way to decode the numbers on it?

That one only fits the Grand Cherokee D44a with the aluminum housing.
