Gear questions

I have a ford 8.8 swapped into my ZJ I believe that it is out of an explorer.
Are the gears the same for all 8.8's, regardless of what they came out of?

I will be needing gears for both the 8.8 and a hp dana 30...have 33's and believe I will be going with 4.56's unless 4.10's are cheaper.

What kind of gears is everyone going with? I am somewhat on a budget, so obviously the cheaper the better, and also what about the install kits?

All 8.8" explorer gear sets are the same, except for the ratio. There is a high pinion rev cut 8.8 also out there, otherwise I would say they all are the same. Given the high pinion is a front, or a Currie High pinion 9" housing.
