Anyone know a good sight to pick up aftermarket parts for the b2300? I'm looking for some new rims/tires (not sure what size is safe for the stock tranny) possibly a lift kit and windshield visor maybe lightbars anyway...any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.... Also noticed the stock side mirrors like to wiggle out of position while driving any suggestions for that

Welcome! Good news your here! If you want links directly to parts you can find many websites to any parts you may want here by just looking through the forum, you'll find threads subdivided into everything for body mods(like you listed), lifts, wheels and tires, engine parts/problems, and everything in between even pics of what others have done with their mazda's look through the tech section as they give great overviews on everything you've mentioned as well as mention sites on where to get them from. Also TheRangerStation has it own place to order parts right up in the right hand corner of every screen called Parts. Don't forget your mazda is a ranger with different sheetmetal so there's alot for it. Good luck I can spend all day on here and never even start to get bored.

x2 it took me about a year to start to really utilize this site. but there is an endless amount info and ppl willing help with whatever it is you need. if you look around longenough there migh even be ppl giving away some part's you need (most of the time you pay shipping) i myself just gave away a moonvisor.

if you become a premium member(i know mine has lapsed) there are monthly drawing's for part's and also you are will have access to more page's

And a premium upgrade helps out this incredibly useful sight to keep it rocking, and a years half the price of a useless(but handy) Hayne's manual.

Pretty much anything that will fit on a Ranger will fit on our trucks...My visor, lifts, and wheels are all off a Ranger

if you are talking about the vinyl decals the best way is to go to the autopart's store and they have a nifty eraser/rollerblade wheel that you can chuck up into a drill take's off the decal but leave's all the paint in perfect condition. otherwise a heat gun and puttyknife and take your chances... but this is all for a different discussion/thread .( in the future) dont forget to do a little diggin in the forum's and use the search function before you post question's that have been covered 1000 time's. and try and post in as the most appropriate thread possiable. now get out there do some searching and start a build thread cuz we wanna see your truck/work
