Mazda headlight vs. 98-00 ranger headlight

i have been thinking for awhile that 98-00 ranger headlights and the mazdas are pretty close to the same and may be interchangeable if someone has a extra 98-00 ranger headlight or someone doesnt mind pulling one of theres take some pics from all sides and hold a tape measure up to it and get some measurements ill do the same tommorow i can almost bet they are if so that means 98-00 aftermarket headlight could be thrown on mazdas

It won't fit. I don't know the dimensions but the corners wouldn't work because of the fenders and the headlights would probably be too tall.

Can you cut and paste the Ranger Lights in the Mazda housings ?

OK I know, what about Ranger fenders on a Mazda, will that work... oh ya you would need a hood too.
Sorry trying to be funny, first thing in the morning but thinking out loud sometimes helps.
Did Ford/Mazda make the truck sssooooo different.
If it would work you could change the badges so it looks like the old nose.

Probably the best idea, trade-in.
I was trying to be funny with the swap thing, but if you intended to keep her then it might be another story.

Good Luck on your choice.
