I<span style="font-family:Century Gothic"> really am thinking of buying a mazda b4000 truck, most likely a 2003+ except for the aftermarket parts issue. I heard you can swap some ranger parts into a mazda but i have no idea what ones. The aftermarket parts im looking for are mainly tail lights/ headlights if they sell them/ 3rd brake light/ and lift kit. Ebay shows nothing so im wondering if any ranger parts can be used on the mazda, and if anyone has them installed with pics </span>
The '93 and newer Ford Ranger is designed by Ford and uses the engines and trannies Ford specifies. The Mazda is identical in almost all areas except certain portions of the body and trim and some minor changes to the interior. Virtually all the engine, and transmission parts interchange perfectly. I have seen lots of Mazdas around here with aftermarket headlights and tailights. I suspect that they are interchangeable with the Rangers of the Same years. I am pretty sure the headlights are different. Why would you want to replace the headlights. The OEM headlights are designed to meet certain safety specs. And the lift kits will work on the Mazda just fine.
Just normally when you change the headlights out with Projection headlights, or black housed headlights, still oem. Mainly i was looking to change the tail lights and get a lift kit. Anyone know where you can get a lift kit for an 03-04 mazda b4000?
