Rear Axle Options?

Will a '99 Sahara advertised with 3.73 gears and a Possi have a D44 rear axle? Or did the factory put a possi a the d35 as well?
I know a simple peek under the rear will tell me what I need to know. However, it will be a drive for me to go see. I want double check before the seller tells me it is a D44 and yall disagree.

Thanks

Rear 44's did, in fact, come with 3.73's.

Edit: Ask them to e-mail you a picture of the rear. Even a cell-phone grade image will show you what you need to know.

Yeap. I had one with the LS in it... Worthless but it had it. If its the 44 you would be steps ahead if it did not have LS.
