Body kit...will it work?

i've basically gotten the idea that my truck is a ranger xlt..or whatever...just not an EDGE model...

i've seen some ranger body kit front ends and side skirts and etc, and i was just wondering if it would all match up for my truck...

i'll try and post some pics tomorrow up of my front bumper mounts, i was just wondering if it would match up with a ranger's front bumper mounts


also, would a 2000 ranger roll pan fit on my truck? i know the bed is a bit wider (of course fleetside beds), so i dunno if it would work...

I've honestly never seen any body kits for Rangers.

I liked the older b-series trucks as being lowered etc. and the newer ones always being the off roaders. Anyway that was kinda off topic. I guess it was just buggin' me. lol

ur not going to be able to lower your truck that much... I am in the process of lowering mine now... I got 2in in the front with out the key flip (upto 4 with the flip) but my CV shafts are level with the ground, i am going to lower it a bit more but ive heard that if a 4x4 is lowerd too much that it could screw up the shafts... not sure tho... Ill get pics with the front done... i still need to do the rear tho

That's really ugly save ur money and dont buy it, unless u could figure a way to slam ur truck down like the other mazda with the full kit then it would look good.

this isnt really about body kits, but... a while back i saw somewhere someone took your grill out, and made a navigator (vertical) grill look a like for their mazda.. it looked great because of your headlights etc.. you should do that.. im gonna look for the link or whatever i found.. i dunno how well im gonna do though cause this was like a year or 2 ago when i last saw it

I'm with Leo, just save for the Edge front clip. That valance just looks to out of place, especially on a truck that wont be that low.
