LOL I used to work at Honda in Marysville, OH before i joined the army. All the stories you hear about how cars are made....is true. If it doesnt fit...beat it in to make it fit! Retap holes uses spacers.

On another note sorry to hear about your truck, glad you are goin to get some reprecussions dealt out!!!!!

That was interesting. My 02 B4000 was made in Edison,NJ, but my dad's 02 B4000 was built at the Twin Cities plant.

I tried the vin decoder and it says brake system is standard. Can I assume it is not ABS then? It is a 1993 Ford Ranger.

I'm confused, apparently my vin starts with a 4??? Did Mazda's have their own format?

edit: nevermind, I guess they do. I've tried a few Mazda decoders but can't find the build date on my truck, would be interesting to know.

I'm going to guess that engine type "V" (not listed) is the 3.0 V6 "flex fuel" option.
