OEM Explorer Gears?

Would OEM Explorer 3.73 gears work in my car? And what else would I need? Also, why exactly do I need to get a chip for them? i have 3.08s right now

I was looking at these:

8.8 gears are 8.8 gears period.

although, you need a 28spline diff and FYI explorer rear ends - the IRS ones are notorious for making noises diffs arent supposed to make.

I would look the gears over good before buying them. It wasn't so much of a gear problem but initial installation being off. And if you buy gears that were installed improperly and broken in that way when you set them up right they will whine. Most of the explorer diff problems was chatter in corners from the clutches.

If you can look them over they are worth buying. It comes down to inspection.
