Can anyone help with axle questions?

I have a Canadian '89 YJ islander with a 4.2 and a TF999 transmission, what type of axles would it have?

dana35 in the rear which is a complete waste of steel, and a dana 30 in the front, not a bad little axle, can handle up to a 35 inch tire w/o any serious modifications.

'90 I6 258 w/ Weber 32-36 Carb.
32" BF M/T's with cragar rims
5" BDS springs, MORE greasable shackles, XJ driveshaft, AA SYE kit, RE SS brake lines. Bilstein 5150's, 255/70 valving all around, 14" travel in front, 10" in rear.

He may also have a D44. RARE but possible. Best thing to do is get under the rear and look at the diff housing for a tag

Thanks! Here are a couple of pics if it helps.



there is an arrow pointing to a one, and one pointing left to a dot.

also there are some numbers that say 8088 or 8808 (depends how you read it.) I found the tag and its completely rusted over, only a strip of brown metal left
