Dana 41 Rear Axle Identification

The Dana 41 rear axle was the standard production axle on the CJ2A, CJ3A, and CJ3B. This axle is what the basic jeep package came with unless it was upgraded by the dealer. This particular axle has a tall oval shaped housing with a large raised vertical portion in the cover for the ring gear. It will have the number 41 cast into the lower right support wing when facing the axle from the rear. see pictures
