The Mazda B series trucks are pretty much Ford Rangers in almost every way. If you look at it and think it's a good buy, then go for it. Just don't be surprised if there is a lot of work that needs done to it. It is 24 years old and may have been used and abused it's whole life.

I bought a 1998 Ranger off a coworker knowing the engine was shot. Got it running and did some work on it. I found the RWD only and 2.5 Lima engine to not be matching up for what I needed but that is no fault of the truck. I sold it to a buddy for him to use for his handyman business about 7 years ago and he loves it and it is still running strong. Just make sure the truck will match your expectations and it will be golden.

The B series after 94. The early ones were nothing like a ranger in terms of anything

Just a friendly correction

I was not aware of that. I always thought they were siblings. Thank you.
