I have a 94 Mazda B3000 that I bought for $3,500 with 49,000 miles. I call my truck the “Razda” (Mazda and Ranger combined). The owner died last year and his daughter was selling it. He took great care of it. Now I have dropped $1,500 into it because the coolant system needed to be completed updated and I added an electric fan. Changed over the oil to synthetic and changed the transmission fluid to royal purple synchromax. New tires. Ran into an issue and had to change the alternator so I upgraded to a 130 amp alternator. I moved the 12v plug to the center console. I gave it a tune up as well.
When I took out the belt driven fan it runs way better now. See pics.

You think you're soooooo cool with your spare change all organized... "Ooooh look at me with my well stored and not sticky 85 cents!" :annoyed:

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
So the Ranger mirrors are larger than the Mazda mirrors?
Would the attachment mirrors not work on the Mazda mirrors?

Yes they are larger than the Mazda depending on the year and model I assume.
The attachments would not fit they were too large.

Here are the different mirror styles and there is a picture of my original mirror in the attachment.

Paddle style mirror that is specified on etrailer.com that will not fit.

The ones I installed that will work with the attachment from etrailer.com
44496


The Stock mirrors that come on the truck minus the electronics. Note: etrailer.com does not specify this style mirror as not fitting, when I ordered there was no mention of them.
44498


Stock mirror is too small to fit in attachment from etrailer.com.

Nice work. I really dont like the Mazda "paddle" style. Theyvseem to flop in the wind more. Thanks for explaining in more detail.
