Takes a lickin' Keeps on tickin'

2002 Mazda Truck 2dr Cab Plus B3000 Dual Sport 2WD SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


This is a good truck for all around use. The fuel economy is average for around town, but is good on the long trips. I have not had a single mechanical problem. The truck is strong enough to pull my boat to the lake and tough enough to handle me taking it out in the Mojave Desert to have some fun exploring. I have only made a couple of changes to the truck to accommodate my uses. I installed slotted and drilled rotors for heat reduction while towing, and an air- fuel programmer to dial in the exact power or fuel economy I need. I put on some 31 x 10.5 R15 mud tires to keep it moving in the sand, mud and snow.

Best Features

Love the 4:10.1 stock gear ratio, 5 speed automatic tranny, the larger wheel wells can handle a 31x10.50R15 wheel, and the higher tortion bar suspension in the front is really durable.

Worst Features

Would like rear disc brakes, a 3rd door, more fuel tank volume, and maybe a Limited slip differential.
