Will this bumper fit?

I recently bought a couple of small trucks and am going to sell one of them. Before I do, i want to trade rear bumpers from a '98 Mazda to my '95 Ranger, will these bolt up without any problem?

Im going to keep the Ranger and the rear bumper on it has a couple of dings in it, and the Mazda bumper is clean of any defects.

im 80% sure they will work fine, unless the mazda bumper has a different shape. it should fit right up to the same bolt holes though, same frame

Redneckstone,
I really like the way your truck looks. Mine looks similar to yours when you first got it:

Nothing fancy, '95 2.3, 5 speed, 107K miles. I wanted a little truck to just run around in and now after finding this site, im wanting to do a bunch of mods to it. What kind of mileage are you getting with those 32's your running? Are you still running the stock gears? I have some factory aluminum rims off of a 2002 Jeep that I might put on this thing and was curious as to how it will do with the bigger tires. I know the bolt pattern is the same, but not sure if it will clear the center of the hub.

See i bought my truck just to get good gas around town and to college. that lasted for a month.... I put the front lift block and the front so the tires would fit. then got the 265x75x16's with some 16' rims. one thing good about that size is there accully 32x10.5 so there not as wide helps with the power we have on these trucks. i was getting before the tires about 19-20mpg now iam getting 16-18mpg depends on my right foot. gas really isnt an issue with me it comes with owning a vehical, i have a job so i can buy gas in my mind. I used to have a f-150 that got 8mpg on a good day so anything over that is a plus in my book. Yes i still have stock gears too. I wouldnt recommend using the jeep wheels because of the offset they have. i would sell them and get aftermarkets. also I have removed the airsilencer in my intake tube to let it breath better. I now have a flow master really hasnt helped perfomace much just gives it a nice rumble. and well u can see the lights all over. also the front push bar on my truck is only $79 dollars, i can tell you where to get it if you would like one. also it gives the truck a higher look if you unbolt the lower half of the stock valance, its 2 peices one is the curved part and the other is the flat bottom part the bottom part comes off, if you look at my cardomain i used to have that valance before the fog light one.

no, it will NOT fit.....even though mazda and ford are kinda one in the same, they tweeked mazda just enough to **** u off and not let u swap parts or anything. u'll have to fabricate u're own brackets to attach it.

btw, good choice on wantin to put a mazda bumper on....they look hella better
