New to the escape, did tbey make a 4x4 version of the 5spd 4cyl in 2002? If not is there any transfer case I can get to fit? I got the know how to make mounts and all but just want to know if there are factory parts that work
Seems like a lot of work, not just mechanical but electrical.
I have never owned a Gen 1 Escape, but looking at the brochures and order guides, it seems that 2001 and 2002 XLS was manual only, and available with AWD. 2003-2004 AWD was 3.0 only. 2005 with the update to the 2.3 manual AWD was available.
I wonder if the automatics transfer case would bolt up to the manual.... if my friend and I can twin turbo an audi s6 we should be able to figure out the electronics. Where are these brochures you're taking about I want too look more into this but have no clue where to start
