Default Headlight options for a 99 B series

I have a set of DDM HID's on the way and I would love to snag a nicer set of clear headlights to really set them off. What are my options if any?

Are they the same as a Ranger? These places don't list the B series with their Mazda choices. Scroll to the bottom for your year. Notice there is a 2nd page for both. The 2nd link if you click on an image has more stuff that comes with it..explaining why they aren't cheap. The top link does show the B series for taillights though and they look pretty good and aren't too expensive.

If they are the same kind of lights thats are in the ranger. I would go on Ebay and search for headlights. They will be much cheaper then the lights on the above links. I just bought a new set of projector headlights for 75 buxs. And i am going to use my HIDs in them and in the projectors.

Ive got no problem with Ebay lights, I just want to make sure the mounting brackets are the same, and other shit like that.

iirc, they aren't the same shape as the rangers. might be very limited on selection.

I'm guessing they are the same which explains why neither of those places post them for the Mazda's. At eBay you have the option to ask a seller a question before you buy.

I wouldn't mind the clear Mazda lights. What about putting a Ford grill on too? Are the fenders the same?

----------
Here's mine again for a side by side look.

This looks like it would fit.


Same here too, but I would remove that piece below the headlights and grill.

that 99 ranger looks the same but 1 of the 4 mounting tabs are in the wrong place.. and will not work.... now later Mazda B series have clear lenses... 2005 n up I think? been on the hunt for a set myself, let my know what you find Rich.... as far as grills, still need a header panel, and bumper as ranger dip in th middle..
2005 Mazda


these will not fit, dont line up with hood


same light but mounting tabs are differenttabs

I know a guy with an 01 or 02 B4000 4x4. He has the newer grill, and clear headlights. They look like shit (need a wet sand) but they are there. Its a 5 speed too. I want it.
