Icon14 The Mazda all clean and with new 32" shoes

Started my day off on Friday by sanding the frame down as best as I could without disassembling the front end and then blew the dust off and painted it. No pictures of the frame, sorry. I also painted my rear bumper plastic, front bumper plastic, and the flares. I used Duplicolor Bedliner in a can. (Cleaned using simple green, then wet-sanded, then rinsed off, then sun-dried, then prepped with alcohol pads, then used 2 coats of bedliner). Saturday I got my new tires mounted, washed the truck, clay-bar'd it, and waxed it. Wooooot.

I also traded my 255/60/17 Pirelli Scorpian AT's on 17" Dale Jr wheels for $400 plus stock Mazda wheels. (I originally paid $500 so it's whatever).

Now here's the best part....I got (5) 32x11.50x15 BFGoodrich All-Terrain KOs for $250. One is brand spankin new, the other 4 not that far behind. Honestly they have 98% tread left, atleast. The guy didn't know what he had.....on with the pictures!!!!

Thanks man, I'd have never guessed she'd look this good at the vehicle age of 13, which is pretty old haha. Already gotten a rear-frame replacement and has 164k on the odometer but she's running strong and getting 18mpg. (Which is gonna drop with the new tires lol)

Looks ALOT better than before. Looks like it needs a bit of a tbar crank up front, and maybe a dual sport sticker instead of the FX4 sticker which looks out of place

I don't entirely know the answer....but they're only found on 2dr xcabs and they were optional. If not optioned, they had stationary windows. Supposedly, there was an option to have 4dr xcab WITH vent windows, but NONE have been seen or taken pics of. Most have assumed it was a typo in the sales literature in like '00. I believe ford axed those windows in '00ish? Made all windows regardless of doors, stationary. This all goes for both Maz and Ford's, BUT, I *wanna say* *i think* the ranger's last year of those windows was '97 as I don't recall seeing a '98+ Ranger with them. But I could be wrong and I'm questioning this while looking at Steve's truck! lol.

i agree, get sport stickers, it looks weird with a mazda fx4 package.

as for the vent windows, could a person with a 4dr ext cab put those in?
