A few that have been mentioned here on the forum are Tasca Ford and Tousley Ford. I know there's been one or two mentioned from the lower half of the U.S., but I don't know them. The only OEM Ford piece I've bought so far was the hitch receiver for legitimate towing purposes... it was $40 with shipping on eBay and $32 at my local dealership.
lollerskates @ tousley. Bought my rig @ morrie's, and I ended up talking to the newest youngest sales guy ever. I knew it was what I wanted when I saw it on the lot, took it for a ride, came back. The guy (and others I've been out on lots with since) actually have the gall to read the sticker "LINE FOR LINE" as though I don't know how to read or what specs it already has.
I stop them mid sentence, and come across as a complete *** - do I care?? No. Don't insult me and assume I A) Can't read while it took the salesperson 10 minutes to come over for a test ride and B) haven't already read about the vehicle and know more than them about it. Unbelievable, some of these guys don't even know some basic answers to the vehicles they supposedly "sell".
All in all, I got what I wanted and the new guy chalked up a sale. Was he responsible for wrangling me into the sale? No way - everyone wins.
In today's world, I figure out what it is I need or want, collect the part number and embark on a search around the world for the best possible price incl. shipping. I don't have any loyalty towards a specific retailer, unless I need some form of OEM part I can't seem to find anywhere else.
I was mainly inquiring on availability more than anything. I assumed that the escape has been around for quite some time now and figured there would be more aftermarket items available. I ordered my new escape this month, i like to add a little personal touch to all my vehicles. I really like the weathertech liners so i will probably buy some of those. As far as anything else for it goes still not sure.
sportwing.com is where I got my side moldings from, they also carry some other aftermarket parts too.
I've seen different bug shields now besides the smoke that was only avail from 08-early 09.
ebay is where I found most of my parts tho.
