B3000 to Ranger

I was thinking of changing my Mazda's front end.

Billet grille, "smoked" head lights, and a Ranger front bumper.

But I was wondering what all needs to be done to make the change, if any. Can you just take off the Mazda parts and slap on some Ranger parts?


I would, off course, put my Mazda symbol on the front though

EDIT: Could someone photoshop on a Ranger front end with a Mazda symbol?

Everything is decently priced. I think you might need Ranger hood and fenders but I'm not 100% on that.

Hood
Fenders
Header panel
Grill
All front lamps
Head lamp retainers
Bumper
Bumper brackets
Valance
Assorted nuts, bolts, etc.

You can use the B's fenders but there is a gap at the corner lamp.

I can't remember if there were any other parts we needed when my brother and I did his B.
