The explorer rear axle swap is big in the jeep world. The gears will fit because its an 8.8. Most likely has 3.73 gears. There should be a tag on the diff cover that says. Or jack up the rear and spin the tire one complete turn and count how many times the driveshaft turns. Exp I tire to 4 driveshaft is 4.10
