Check out my FTW page @ http://www.ftwtrucks.com/fordman33

and you will see the Razzi Body Kit, and the Xenon front bumper. Overall the Mazdas and the Rangers are the same body. The biggest difference is in the front (bumper, grille) and the rear taillight setup. Other than that things are the same underneath and on the body.

As for the Extreme Dimensions....that's a diff story, at least where the kit molds into the cab area. I don't know about the Mazdas, but the Ranger Regular cabs grew by 3 inches in 98. That body kit says it is for up to 97. I'm sure a quality body shop can use more fiberglass and extend it to fit. But that's up to you and what you want to.

Good luck.

cuz i can...

the trucks at that height where it could go either way.....up would cost more money and honestly i think it would look like ***....but lowered it relatively cheaper, i can gain some cool points for looks/handling....and i'd be one of the first lowered mazda b4k's....

Heh only thing I can say is be careful and watch all your 4x4 hardware. Looks good anyway though.

Brent, I say you go the route Scotty went and do the 04 valance conversion. It looks sssoooo good and will really make the mazda front end look awesome.

I wasnt really paying attention to time but it was 3hr at the most, a little exageration... The first side took the longest because i was sorta experimenting but after the experimentation, the second side went in like 45 min tops

I'd say Brent if you think it'll look good, go ahead & lower it. I think it'd also look sweet w/ the Ranger front-end!

why the hell did you lower a 4x4? Rangers look stupid when they are lowered anyway. I don't mean to be rude, they just don't look right to me.

here is a good pic that shows about how low mine sits.

Not too low, but blocks removed, and torsion bars loosed just a little.
