Mazda B3000 Bed

My 2002 B3000 ext Cab 4x4 had a little accident and the whole pass side bed is tore -up. Upon looking they list two different beds one for 2WD and a different one for 4WD ( ?????) . Having no luck finding one locally thought of using a Ranger Bed.

Will It work ? This is my Wife's "Baby" and I would really like to keep her HAPPY

Thanx
Jim

1993 to 2011 Rangers and Mazda B-series used the same bed size, 6ft, regular cab or extend cab same size, 2WD or 4x4 same size
But 1998-2011 has same body lines

Ford did offer a Long bed, 7ft, in Regular cab only, not many of those around, and won't fit any chassis except long bed as the axle was 6" farther back

There were 2 different models of beds, styleside and flareside
Styleside has wheel wells in the bed area
Flareside is what GM calls stepside, wheel wells are on the outside of bed so bed is narrower, and there is a step on the outside of the bed
Either will fit any ranger 1993-2011, 1998-2011 to match body lines

An then there are different Trims
Style side WITH fender moldings: https://therangerstation.com/resourc...d_ranger_3.jpg
Plain style side: http://images.newcars.com/images/car...WB-Photo-7.png

Flareside: http://www.mmsean.com/ranger/ranger.24.jpg
And here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/membe...ep-bed-4x4.jpg

The 4x4s tended to have the fender moldings on front and back wheel wells, maybe thats what the difference is?

I don't recall seeing any Mazda B-series with Flaresides, maybe it wasn't an option???

The tailgate marking was different, of course, lol.

Google: 2002 Mazda b3000 images

And: 2002 Ranger images

It does look like the Mazda beds have extra lines, like a semi-flareside, and do come with or without fender moldings
Bur can't see any difference between 2WD and 4x4s

The cab lines are the same, so Ranger or Mazda bed would look OK

I believe the tail light on those beds was a different shape and tri-color.

If he uses a Ranger bed he will need tri-color Ranger tail lights.
