Mazda B to Ranger Conversion? Fenders?

Did Ford keep the fenders the same between both trucks?
I know the hoods/grilles/header panels etc are all different...but the fenders look almost if not identical.

Anyone know for sure?

What year is your b series?

You'll need the following...

Header panel, headlights, corner lights, new turn signal wiring, fenders, grill with shell, possible bumper and hood.

The fenders are really different by where the corner light contours to the fender.

everything's different. you'll be able to use the hood depending what year grille you go wit, but the header panel is the biggest hurdle to get around. Once the header panel is replaced with a Ranger one, the Ranger lights will all mount up, You can use the Mazda fenders with a 98-00 Ranger front end, but they leave a gap which doesn't look that great.

And the Mazda bumper wont work either, as it is flat under the grille, where all the Ranger grilles are lower, hence why they have that dip in the centre of the bumper, unless again you do a 98-00 Ranger front end.
