Which 4.88 gears?

I have a 97 explorer 31spline axle, and a torsion(sp?) locker from a 03 fx4 lvl2 and Im looking for a 4.88 gear. I also have a rebuild kit


but i dont know what 4.88 gears i should get, i dont know the difference besides a price

Superior Axle Gears:

Richmond Gears:

Motive Gears:

Ford Racing Gears:

My best friend has a guy at Ford thats willing to install everything professionally for a small price, but i was wondering if there was anything else i need?


Thanks for the help

I think ford is best, but I put motive [ shipper thought they were ford; or so he said] gears in my truck [standard grade] . They're ok for me, but hard as hell. I wouldn't want to drag race with them. bob
