Oh, I was referring to my LED interior lights. LEDs won't cut it for use in headlights. They look cool but can't illuminate well over the distances required for headlights. (Actually some high-end cars are starting to offer good, special LED headlights, but nothing you could get for the Escape would be up to the task, as far as I know.) If you want to add brightness to your headlights, HIDs are the way to go! There are lots of threads for that mod. I had a dual-beam HID kit for my Mustang and it was great, but I haven't taken that plunge for the Escape.jayb said:Ronin, i'm new here, but was wondering how you like the LED lights.
I, as well am looking to brighten up my stock headlamps. Tried the
silverstars, and whatever else, but i'm not happy yet. I'm running
a license plate bracket mount with a couple Lightforce spotlights
for night driving, but would like some extra power from the headlights.

you'll see that even with mud flap there's a body part on rear door that is facing front that is blasted from road debris very fast (mine got blasted after a couple of months even if Ford as applied a plastic film) so imaghine without mud flaps... it'S all the painted rocker panel that will be blasted!!!! i think that's why normal escapes have a different plastic rocker panel) and i only do 8k miles a year.cmwalker12 said:thanks for the compliments!!! so far i'm pleased with the escape overall, a litttle disappointed in the lack of aftermarket stuff though. i wanna keep it sleek looking not sure how the mudflaps would look on it though. any pics would be appreciated. especially since i dont have the foot rails on it.
