Default Need help identifying 14 bolt axle with disc brakes

I purchased a 14b with what looks like factory disc brakes but it came without the rotors and calipers. I wantt o try and identify it so I can buy rotors calipers, brakes, etc... CAn any body help me with the year and make this may have come out of? The axle details are as follows:

Numbers on carrier housing:

CFD
135
3977323

From this it looks like the older style (pre-87) with drums but the pics below look like a factory disc style:

If it is stock gears, the date should be stamped in the ring gear.

Post a picture of the housing as well- it kinda looks like one of the newer style where the rotor slips over the hub instead of pressed on behind the hub like the older style

def not a newer style where the disc's would be standard. Mine is a "new style" and there is a ton of ribbing on them and most of the fastners are metric.

I figured it out (spent ALOT of time on google). It has a 1/2 backing plate on it from the front d44 or 10 bolt. This is used for a common 3/4 ton caliper and rotor disc brake conversion. I just need to get the calipers and rotors.
