Stupid Newbie Mazda Headlight Question...

Just got a '99 B3000. I love it, but one of the headlights is busted-out, and the other is oxidized.

I'd love to replace them both, but the cheapest I've found is around $110 shipped for some boring OEM-ish ones on ebay.

What if any year ranger headlights bolt up to my B?
If none, what parts do I need from the junkyard to convert to ranger style headlights. I'd love some pics if possible.

you'll need to convert the front end using the headerpanel and grille but i believe you also have to have the front fenders, there is a guy (edge_wannabe) who has a mazda with an edge front end, im sure he'll chime in. Also, mazda put clear lights on the newer models, havent they used the same style/shape lights since your bodystyle? If so you could just use some from a newer mazda truck. My '00 ranger came with the non-clear lights and I just recently installed some clear ones, they look soooo much better.. but good luck.

I'm too new...

I really don't want to start swapping fenders If possible. I'm not sure what years do what, so any info on that would also help.


And before anyone gets started, yes I did search
