Default The Silver Bullet | 2006 Mazda B2300

Hey everyone, just thought I'd start up a build on this site of my first truck!
2006 B2300, got an automatic transmission with A/C and manual everything else haha


This was the truck when i first bought it, came with the raider shell



Took that off since my dad had a tonneau cover left over from his 2011 Ranger(He put a shell on his). I personally like this look way more, looks sportier





Next thing I did was change the factory headunit to a Kenwood KDC-358U. Made a huge difference in sound quality, even just on 4 factory speakers, I personally really like the green colour the most, at night it matches the rest of gauges and doesn't stick out. Plus the aux port is amazing!



Here's my lastest mod, 10" Kicker Bassstation, she kicks haha, it won't shake the neighborhood however 90% of the music i listen to is classic rock so i didn't need earth shattering bass . It fits fairly well although I did loose a few clicks back on my seat do to the armest from the 60/40 bench hitting the sub, time to convert to bucket seats!



Here's how she sits now, hopefully in the next few months get some things like 30" tires with some pro comp series 52 rims with a 2" lift so it sits like 4x4 Ranger

Any Suggestions let me know!

I agree with you on the 2" lift idea. Would look great. Only issue is I haven't seen a 2" coil sprung lift?

Nice truck! and a 2" lift is easy to achieve. You could use spacers in front and shackles out back really cheap. Or just get longer springs for the front.

Looking good. I agree with the higher stance. It'll look nice with 2 extra inches underneath it. Probably need some new tires though to make it look complete.

I'll be doing 2" coil spacers and either shackles or blocks for the rear
And yesterday I ordered some 30x9.5x15 tires

THEY'RE ON!!!! Better pics will be on tomorrow when it's actually light outside, these pictures actually make them look smaller, in person they look pretty big
I love the way it sits now, as I said in the past, a 2 inch lift will come, just need time and money
