Default 1984 wagoneer Dana 44 Q's?

So I'm looking at doing a front axle swap and I'm interested in a Wagneer Dana 44. I found one online that is off a 84. I talked to the guy who has it and he says it has a vaccum disconect comng out of the differential housing. I really don't want an axle with vaccum disconnect. I was wondering what years of the wagoneer don't have the vacuum disconnect?

If your expecting to find a drop in it wont happen, the full size is wider,diff is on the passenger side.

only wider by an inch or two. my front hp44 has been retubed to waggy length. just looking at it i cant tell the difference in width. also the diff is not the passenger side, its a driver side drop in the 80's

Since we're already on the topic of axles, which older or newer vieichles could I find a high pinion Dana 44 on? I know they came on some ford trucks but I'm not sure which ones?
