    im going to run 36s on my explorer and im putting 4.56s in, and for the 8.8 rear end do i need regular cut 4.56s or reverse cut 4.56s?....also, if i go ahead and put 4.56s with my 32s on...will it mess anything up? or should i wait till the 36s r here?

    4.56s or 4.88 will be most ideal with the 36s, both will physically be fine with the 32s also

    you need regular cut gears, not reverse

    Just my .02 on this one since I've ran 36s on mine before. Go 4.88 gears or even 5.13s. My 4.56s were great for highway drivein and all that but on the trail and especially in the mud I could've used a much lower ratio. Just think twice before ordering if its not to late. :)
