2 questions:

98 Mazda B4000 4x4 cab plus SE

I don't see a listing for this model or year for that matter. All of the drivetrain components on this particular truck seem to match the ford part numbers. (ie: mazda part number for hub assembly has a ford part number attached to it) Will the AVM manual lockout for a 98 Ranger 4.0L fit a B4000 of the same year?

Is the quality of AVM lockout comparable to Warn products? I dont want to put garbage parts on my truck.

well you dont really have an option because warn doesnt make hubs for the 98-00 model years. yes they will fit your mazda. the AVM hubs are better than the factory hubs so in anycase it is an improvement.

I know warn doesnt make lockouts for 98-00. My stock pulse vacuum ones are just fine. the vaccum system is a pile though. It is however, fixed right now. whrn it breaks again i will put avm's on. i was just curious what the quality of the AVM's are compared to anything that warn makes. Thanks for your input.

You're limited on bigger tires and traction devices on 98-00 Rangers due to the drivetrain setup (strength). The AVMs will hold up just fine.
