Cool man nothing better than having a ride PAID OFF !!! :yahoo:

As far as looks it depends on what you want to go for. I have had mine lifted with big mudder tires and now lower with a street look.

The aftermarket for the Escape is somewhat limited compared to some other SUVs but much can be done. Head and tail lights, flairs side steps or bars, rear wings, tints, wheels tires, hoods, chrome...

What sort of look are you going for?

Welcome to the city

I suggest everything on my mod list lol, I started off with the same Escape you've got, except the XLT rather than XLS. Start off with the small things such as a shorty antenna or the '05 style headlights, then go for the side steps, bull bar, and maybe wheels? It all depends on what you're looking for. :D

You might want to post some pics. It's easier to tell what might look good on it.

Wheels and tire make the biggest change in the look of any vehicle, but it is usually one of the most expensive. Also consider how long you really plan to keep the thing. Wheel and tires and be moved to other cars (your next escape :)) later on.

I got mine off of ebay from the user "shortyantennasource". I think it was around $15 with shipping, and it was at my house within two days.

I agree, that Tahoe looks sick all blacked out. Black matte paint, tinted windows, tinted tail lights, black wheels, black antenna. That'd be sweet.

It was a Chevy Tahoe, and I'm not sure what you're talking about that he gave away, I haven't seen the show in awhile.

Just a small snippet of useless trivia.

I worked for years with a bloke called Matt Black.

His parents must have had a sense of humour. :lol:

Anyway.
