What Pathkiller said.
I wouldn't describe the centered D44 as rare, as it was in all 72-75 CJ's, as well as Commandos and Postal Jeeps.
The rare one is that offset flanged 30 spline unit, used from mid 70 thru 71.
FWIW, I used to own an early Scout which I ran for years with the offset model 18 tcase and a centered 44 diff, but it was long enough that the driveline angle wasn't too bad.
