Default 2011 Body panel interchangeability

I bought a new 2011 Ranger a few weeks ago and tried to remove the "Ranger" and "Ford" emblems; now there are holes in the tailgate! I even asked here about it and forgot . The fenders will have the same problem, but I was able to put the fender emblem back on carefully(I screwed up the tailgate emblems). I am wondering if any year Rangers or Mazdas came with smooth fenders or tailgates, i.e. no holes, just glue holding on the emblems, that would swap without bodywork? I might try to keep an eye out for some black fenders and a tailgate and swap 'em out.

all tailgates and fenders will come with emblem mounting holes no matter the year.

actually now that you mention that Chris i believe you are right, the mazda's had stickers instead of emblems on the tailgate IIRC. the fenders will still have the holes though.

The mounts are exactly the same for the Ranger/B-series gate and the Mazda's are smooth with just stickers like mine

just purchase a new emblem at the ford dealer. or tell them someone tried to steal it. maybe since it's under warranty, they will install a new one for free!

I saw one the other day and it look's l like a good size logo for an f150 making it too large for a ranger.

Awesome! Thanks, I guess those are the same as the 2011 Rangers?

The large ford emblem on the back was pretty bad, bad enough I wanted it off of there! It was like 6"-8" across, plus the "Ranger" emblem, and the dealer's emblem(thankfully they didn't punch holes in there as well); just a bunch of tacky plastic junk on the back of my nice new black truck. I prefer a smooth look. Some day I'll have the holes in the fenders welded up...
