What's up everyone! Well I bought a Dodge Journey 5 months ago and after it breaking a few times at 7000 miles I traded it in for a 2010 Escape. I should have never left my Fords, but that is another story. We got a 2.5 XLT red with cargo package, and I am really digging the sport package. I want to know if anyone knows where to buy the black grill and bumper cover. Also looking for gloss black door handle covers and possibly black headlights like the sport as well.

PS: 200 miles on her and on flat land, 60 mph, we see 36 mpg!! To add, I will be doing a lot of traveling while startin up my subwoofer company so great MPG's is all so sweet!

Congratulations on the new toy! Now you just need to post a few pictures... As you may have noticed, we like photos here :D

I can only dream of gas mileage like that with my 02 V6. I'm lucky if I get 21 mpg all highway. Around town I'm in the low to mid teens depending on the time of year It's good to see Ford improving the efficiency of there vehicles so much :yes:

I believe there are 2 threads on converting an XLT into a Sport. Try searching the Exterior Mods section for 'Sport Convert' or something like that. There is also another thread where you can ask for part numbers. They Original Poster used to get back to people within a day or two. I haven't seen the thread in a while so I'm not sure he is still monitoring it or not. I'm sure you can find something here. Good luck!

Thanks! I will take some nice pics this weekend after I wash it again. Day after getting her we went to a stereo competition about 225 miles out and hit every bug on the way there and back :doh:

Thanks for info on the sport parts, I really like the black grill on the red :)

LOL, at least you did get to leave this area :lol: Armor school from Fort Knox is moving here now and expecting first 20,000 troops on the way in June.

Thanks for those links Jonas :) I really want to get painted door handles and the black grill and I will be happy.

I hate to repeat something that has already been said but.....
:pics:

Congratz on your new Escape! I have to tell you I LOVE mine as well and very glad that I went ahead with the sports appearance package from the getgo. :)P I feel like Im in a special club because my lil dragon is unique amongst her brothers and sisters. Havent quite gotten 30mpg yet with her but that may be because Im flying down the autoban at 80mph :p

On a different note...little peeved that I didnt get the wetlock storage compartment like I asked for....it was supposed to come with the cargo package....but I guess it doesnt for the '10s :mad:

Ft. Benning... mmmmmmmm... gives me the shivers when I think of it. Got sent there for Sniper School many years ago. Had to have been one of the toughest schools I went to as a young (24 young?) Specialist.
