Thanks for the question.
This will only work for your vehicle if you have the 4.6L engine.
Question for Mazda B4000, year 2001, "Dual Sport", built on the 4-wheel drive frame, no modifications to this vehicle: Will this part (PN:g/245-2013-28) bolt in my Mazda (Ford) Mazda B4000 rear axle? It presently has a Ford rear axle code "95" (8.8" ring gear and 3.55 gear ratio/not limited slip)and I would like it to be equivalent to Ford's code R5 which is a limited slip differential. Would the axle shafts remain the same? Could I keep the original ring and pinion gear? Will it fit inside the case? Any hidden "goblins" to rear their head in such a swap if such a swap is possible?

Hi Wes This G/2 unit is a direct replacement for the factory unit and will not have any issues installing this your existing bearings and gear will fit. the only recommendation i have is to bet a bottle of friction modifier http://jo.my/439ixv to insure smooth clutch operation and a good gear oil like the Lucas brand of oils http://jo.my/gearoil . Thank Youi
Axle code tells me that you have a 3.31 gear ratio but does not confirm the ring gear size. To use this limited slip your axle must have 12 cover bolts if so yes this differential will fit your factory axle correctly. installation is fairly simple just check back lash before you start and shim it to get it back to the beginning back lash setting. always use a high quality gear oil like the Lucas line http://jo.my/stkfta and add a bottle of friction modifier to keep the clutches operating correctly http://jo.my/439ixv Thank You
