I have an 86 SE5. I know there was a "base" and "lx" in addition to the "se5" trim. My question is what are the differences in the trims? Was SE5 the highest and if so, what does it get you over the base and lx models?

I belive that the LX was the highest trim package. My 86 standard cab LX had the following options: power steering, A/C, tilt steering, cruise control, casette player w/ graphic equalizer, tach cluster, locking glove box, center console, inside fuel door release,full wrap map pocket door panels, chrome inside door handles, B pillar plastic panels, carpet back wall, bucket seats, driver seat had lumbar and another handle on the side, chrome outside door and tailgate handles, small stainless fender trim, stainless strip on top of front bumper, chrome rear bumper, chrome around tail lights, chrome around drip gutters, chrome wheels. I think thats it but I could be forgetting something. I kinda regret cutting it up, I should of kept it stock and chopped up a base model truck. Oh well it was my first B series and I was excited to bag it!!

yeah thats a lot more hooked up than mine. My SE5 has A/C, plastic B pillar, bench seat, manual everything, which begs the question, what does my truck have over a base model?

^^Yeah, to the best of my knowledge my truck had all the US options. I will try to see if I still have pics of it when it was all stock. It was my first mazda so I had no idea most of the options were rare.

The SE-5 was Mazdas "sport" package. Blacked out trim, power steering, tach, ABS and "custom" vinyal stripes. I think thats it. It was basicly the base with blacked out trim.

My 1989 SE5 had a bench seat, no power steering, no AC, no ABS, elephant ear mirrors, 2 spoke steering wheel, black bumpers, grey grille, 14" steel spoked rims. I can't verify if they were white or black from the factory as they were black when I bought the truck,but my spare was white. Also had regular door panels, no tach, AM/FM radio, 2 speakers.

My 1990 B2600i parts truck. Not sure what was original and what wasn't cosmetically as it had new bumpers,fenders,doors and bed. It was an FI 2.6 with power steering but no AC. Had a tach, 3 spoke steering wheel, all the way up door panels with door pockets,sliding rear window and chrome rims, as well as a centre console. This would have been a very nicely equipped truck in it's day. Also had chrome trim tail lights and door handles.
