Icon2 B-series to Ranger

Im only considering it but im sick of saying "yea i just got a mazda b3000"
and ignorant sayen "you should have a ford ranger or s-10 and bought amarican"
what exactly this include other than
fleet style sides
new grill
new ford ovals
and taking off all the mazda decals
other than that are there any other differances?
edit: also how much do you think it would cost?

You'll need the following.

Hood
Fenders
Grill
Lights
Bumper
Valance
Steering Wheel if possible
Debadged tailgate or Ford emblems on tailgate.
De-stickered bed and replace with STX or stock Ranger 4x4 Stickers.

(Remember, STX uses the Mazda bed)

Listed in this thread are if you wanna go ***** out on it. Just the front end...you do need hood, header panel, grille, headlamps, bumper, and fenders. Mazda fenders work 'okay', but the fit and finish of the ranger corner lamps on them are a little odd.

Tell them that when you pop the hood it says Ford.

Anyone with half a brain knows Mazda is owned by ford so it really wouldn't bother me. haha

tell the ignorant morons that the ranger isnt american either.
it was engineered by the japanese, its a japanese truck. thats why it didnt suck.

they slapped ovals on it and sold it here, and it was SO POPULAR that they stopped it in 2012 because it was eating into their f150 sales at twice the price for only 25% more capability overall with 10x the failure rate and much higher service costs.
