Just wanted to say hi and tell you all to look forward to lots fo noob posts from me.

I havent even got it yet (on order) (2008 Mazda B4000 SE 4x4) but i have already a list of what to do with it.

Little lift kit - 3"

Nice mud/snow tires that fit nicely on 16's

Cap, brush guard, whinch,

I will be using this truck daily as well as hunting and fishing in the Great White north.

Lots of info in these forums to help me

Great site

We consider Mazda's the "illegal aliens" of the Ranger site: you may think they're wrong, but they're here so you've got to deal with them!

In all seriousness though: Welcome!

Well ty all.

I have my first question

I have decided to get rid of the Goodcrap tires that come with it.....this is my 3rd mazda and i get rid of the tires from goodyear as soon as i can.

Anyways I am getting BFGoodrich A/T tires so my question is the truck comes with stock 255/70R16 tires and if I do the 1-2" (probally 1.5") TB lift what are the biggest tires i can put on those 16's without any other modding. I was thinking maybe LT315/75R16.

Any thoughts thanks. I wont post this down in the tire section quite yet.

lol actually the bigger pic is a B3000 dual sport (4x2)..the b4000 SE has the chrome bumpers

it has every option u can get...except leather because its not an option

kinda wish I had color matching bumpers instead of the chrome.....have to keep an eye out at the wreckers (its winter 8))

i think the big pic is of an older modle, as my 02 b4000 4x4 is identical to that painted bumpers and all, the newer mazdas have chrome bumpers and alot better looking mirors like the 08 rangers thats it tho.

actually we are both right an '08 4x2 dual sport would look like that

only reason I went with mazda instead of ford was a better deal at mazda since i have bought 2 previous cars there.

Get the red. I can't believe they still make the B's. I wanted one badly, however, in my area they are impossible to get. I could have gotten a standard cab stick for $14,000 + (are you kidding me) a couple of months ago. So, even though they are on the webpage mazdausa, I was told get a ranger. I had three before so I figured why not?? I thought I found the perfect one -- a rare ext. cab STX. Looks just like the Mazda B, but with the Ford emblems. Oh well, I settled on my fifth ranger -- a metallic gray extended cab automatic, 4 door, XLT-- 08. haven't even hit 7,000 miles yet.
