Help with Front Dana 70 BOM

I found some numbers on my Front Dana 70, that I am trying to decode to figure out what it came from.
Doesn't match up with any searching I was able to do on the www.

Previous owner figured the diff came from a late 80's, early 90's motorhome.
It's got disk brakes, open knuckles... use to have some 10 lug modification of some sort... (since changed out to 8 bolt hubs with chevy dodge stuff)

the numbers I found were on the drivers side tube...
smaller text is first and reads 070BA116 2
And to the right of that is larger text reading 157 95

Any help I would appreciate...
Center cast housing has a large 'B" at the top above where the pinion is.
has a 70 cast into the webs.... is forsure a 35 spline dana 70...
And is loaded with 5.13 gears... open, one piece carrier.
I plan to weld up the carrier... as lockers are few in options. Will go ARB when Cash permits, or it busts up the welded carrier.
It's low pinion drivers side output. 3.5" Diff tubes.

only had 30 spline outers though...

Didn't find any other numbers cast into it anywhere.

Thanks Pirate.
YJ all chopped up... and a pile of parts...

Most Dana 70 front axles started out as Dodge Dana 60 fronts, then the conversion companies chopped up a Dana 70 rear and swapped center-sections.
