(edited picture for same year)


What design looks better?

Just want to see the poll, probably going to be Ranger because of bias opinions.

What I don't like about this poll is you took a glorified Mazda (4x4) against a value 2wd Ranger XLT. The Ranger valence doesn't even have foglamps or a color matched grille.

Besides everyone knows design is subjective.

That's about as close as they get.

I believe the Mazda Bseries never had a "no fog light" option, sorry.


I was trying to add two lifted trucks from cardomain but my computer has a bad virus, if someone else wants to.. go for it but try and make the trucks semi even in lift/tires

Ranger. I hate the Mazda front end, the headlights make it look like it's squinting and the fenders and bedsides look akward.

I had to vote for the ranger. its an 04 and sonic blue and so is mine lol. Though I like bseries trucks too. I also agree that you should of picked equally equipped trucks instead of the high end bseries and a low end ranger.

Uh. How do you know someone just didn't remove the lights since there is still a spot for them?

Since mine has no fog lights, you going to post mine up and say "epic fail?" too

Why is everyone *****ing about the equalness? If I had posted Zabeards truck and that white Mazda no one would have complained.

I bet they would've at least said that you should post "comparably equipped models"...

Other than the "Honey I shrunk the grill, headlights, and corners" on the Mazda.. the Mazda's do look really good. I considered a B-Series bed swap at one time..

Mazda, because everybody here and their uncles all have the same truck. I like to stand out, be different, and look better.

IMO, the taillights are cooler, the body styling on the bed is cooler, and overall, I honestly think it looks better.

Can't beat an *** like this. (Don't mind the blurry-ness)

Ranger, and yes there were B-series that came with no fogs. I do not care for the look of the B-series at all except for the cab, which is the same as the Ranger.

To me they look almost exactly the same. But the Ranger's grill tops the Mazda's.
So Ranger wins.

hillyard beat me to it, my mazda doesnt have fog lights either or the painted bumper, i think it was an option unless you got the v6, and im sure ive seen v6s without fogs also. AS for the bumpers i think it only started being done in 01 when they changed the front end.

Anyways these threads are stupid, this is a RANGER forum .... and if the mazda b was so popular, this board would have more than one new post PER DAY

http://forums.mazdaworld.org/index.php?showforum=41

anyhow, let me reiteriate how STUPID these threads are. If you went on s10forum you wouldnt see people with Isuzu Hombres talking **** on the s10.





gee .... looks like the ranger vs mazda arguement ... even i think the ranger looks better but if it was that much of an issue i would have passed up the cleanest 99 truck ive ever seen for it
