      I bought the Mazda with a missing calliper on the left side, the seller sent 2 with the truck but told me that they don't fit the truck, so today i bought a $170 callipper and went home to finaly get brakes on the B2500....
      The new callipper i got was wrong to:censored:

      So i started to look at the parts the seller sent me.. i took one callipper and the bracket from the other and everything fitted nice... now the truck stops:D

      That sticker says B2600D, what does the D stand for? It's not a diesel, is it?

      Local junk yard got a ranger bead. . Would it be bolt on?
      If its bolt on it would be less Job than the rust. ..
      They want $350 for it with a broken tail light
