i think you could get away without the bumper ... but yes youd need the entire bed incl tails and tailgate

never seen anyone put a ranger step on a mazda

To my knowledge, Mazda has never put a stepside bed on the current models of the B-Series (94-present)

you'd need the bed, tailgate, bumper/brackets, and prolly the filler neck as said above, as well as the tails and any wiring associated with them. Prolly wouldn't be bad to get all the mounting hardware for the stuff too

as far as I know the bumpers are same width, I know the bumper brackets for a stepside and a fleet side are different, the stepside's start out wide at the bumper and then bend in to mount on the frame, and the fleet side or whatever, are pretty much strait from bumper to frame.
