Default 1999 Ford Ranger Manual Locking Hubs

Hi, Looking for some help. I want to replace the vacuum hubs with the manual hubs and Rugged Ridge / AVM are the only product I've heard of that purports to fit my Ranger. However I'm having a hard time confirming "spline" count. My mechanic says my old system has a 42 spline count so I need a hub with the same number of splines. One supplier of the Rugged Ridge hub lists a spline count of 44 which my mechanic says can't fit. Can someone help me here? Has anyone dealt with this spline count issue? Does anyone know of a manual hub for my Ranger with the right spline count? Help please.
Keith

Personally, I've never heard of this. When I purchased mine, I simply ordered a set for a 99. Don't take my word as the gospel because I'm no expert. I'm 99.9% sure you will be fine ordering the ones you are looking at.

Yeah If they have the plastic hubs on them now, then I would be willing to bet the AVM's will work. Your mechanic may be looking at the wrong hubs on the site too.

If what you are looking into buying the AVM/Rugged Ridge hubs. They will fit your truck. Hope you aren't paying somebody to install them for you!
