Need help on rear end ID

I have a 77 CJ5. My problem is that I bought a rear end from a salvage yard because it had the one piece axles. The guys were not sure on the year of the jeep it came out of but said it was a CJ7 quadratrac. It has been
installed and working fine but one of the axle bearings went out.I pulled the axles and they had sealed bearings on them and not the typical cj bearing setup. I cannot find these sealed bearings anywhere. I need to know exactly what rear end i have. The numbers on top of the housing are 3227078 and if anybody knows where i might be able to find the bearings I would greatly appreciate it.

Figured it out finally! The one piece axles I have are the early Moser axles. To be able to use the typical setup with the tapered bearing and seals the axle has to be milled down. Moser has the specs on their site. They also still sell the sealed ball bearings that were on mine. Part # 9CJ57 and the mfg # on the bearing is RW903RCJ74. Maybe this will help someone in the future.
