Default Ranger VS Mazda B front clip, whats differant?

my buddie's got a worn out '98 mazda B3000 4x4 that he runs around in, been a good truck for him but the previous owner kissed a guardrail with the front passenger side and effed the bumper, fender, filler panel and headlight up really good.

im just wondering how many pices are the same as a ranger, in case we decide to get some pices from the junkyard to fix it. the hood, drivers side fender, lights and the grille are all undamaged. i know grilles are differant, but what about bumpers, fenders, lights, hoods, ect?

from a ranger you'll need, front bumper & brackets (Bumper dips in the middle to accommodated the drop grill), header panel, grill, headlights... the fenders will work with ranger parts as they have same lines as Ranger.. mazda and ranger fender look totally different. cant have one of each on the truck..
