Maybe im reading your post wrong, its a little confusing but..
The amc model 20 was used up untill early 1986. im not sure when it was introduced. there were two versions, narrow trac was the earlier version and wide trac was the later. i believe they made the transition around 1980.
The dana 44 was only offered in late 1986 in cj7's. and in the earlier 1970-75 cj5's (narrow trac)
I believe that the 6 bolt caliper plate was used until atleast 1978 as well as the 6 bolt hubs used until 1981
