A lemon-shaped cover identifies the Dana model 41 rear axle found in CJ-2As. This axle uses the same spider gears and axleshafts as the Dana 44 found in the CJ-3A and later CJs, but has different ring-and-pinion gears and carrier. While the Dana 41 was strong enough for most uses, the popular Dana 44 found its way into many a CJ-2A as the original 41 axles became shredded. Notice how severely the housing is offset to the right to match up with the output of the stock Dana 18 transfer case found in all 4x4 flatfenders.
