96 Mazda B front end on a 01 ranger?

Curious if its possible to put a 96 Mazda B3000 front end (grill, headlights, etc) on a 2001 ranger edge 2wd? Id imagine i would need off the mazda: headlights, grille, core support, fenders, hood, and bumper.

AFAIK, all would have to be changed as you listed, nothing is interchangeable.
When you say core support, I'm assuming you mean the "header panel" ?
That has to be changed as well since the headlights, grill etc. that bolts on to it is different from the 2 trucks.

The hood may be the same however, with it being aluminum on the Mazda and steel on the Ranger.

Was your Ranger in an accident ?
There is no advantage in changing it over, in fact the Mazda bits are harder to find and can be more expensive.

No no accident - my pass fender and hood has had alot of the paint baked away over the years and just prefer the look of that era of mazda better. Was one of those in the back of my mind ideas if its even possible.
