Default Re: Mazda B-Series/Ford Ranger Parts Compatibility

Are any Ford rear (slider) windows compatible with my '97 B4000? Meanwhile, I have an ugly sliding plexiglass panel in place of a broken (2 piece) slider pane.

So far, I found that all underneath parts (bumpers, steering, drivetrain, suspension, brakes, electrical connectors, radio, fuel-filler-pipe) are all interchangeable. I read that only the body & trim are different, which kinda makes sense.

I may have to take a entire clip to make it work, not really sure about core support etc.
here are the pics of the wreck.

You could always buy newer mine is a 2000 and I put 2001 parts on it. My opinion it looks better.

They will but you need to put in a new core support

I put a 99 front end on my 96 and used the 96 rad support , the support needs to be trimed for the headlights and you need to make a bracket for the hood latch ,
