I would suggest a couple of things not necessarily in this order. First I would suggest a bug deflector. It is inexpensive and easy to install. I put a Lund Interceptor II deflector on my Escape when I had it. Here is a pic of my Escape after inatallation.



Second, I would suggest possibly some larger tires. I never got to make this mod on my Escape but I was considering it. There are some members here that have done this mod.

My $.02 worth.

As for the Euro lights, why aren't they availible in Europe??? :shrug:

A pair of sidesteps would look nice on it though

Hello Brando. :) Do you have a dashboard mat? During the summer it will reduce the chance ,of your dashboard cracking from the heat of the sun. :)

Yes it is!!!! It replaced the garter from my wedding which is still around here somewhere. Or I'm trying to get in touch with my feminine side?!?!? ;-|

Two simple mods I would recommend would be tinted license plate covers and a shorty antenna.

Ohh whoops, my mistake. Go for some new ones, I got mine for $5 a pop. As for the fog lights, go with a set of Nokya Arctic White bulbs, I loveee mine cause they match the pure white of my HIDs.

BTW they're bulb size 893.
