So my old neighbor who just purchased a 2003 ford escape XLT has these sporty silver runningboards. They are a 1.5-2 inch silver tube that is more looks than function. I have this one picture that I found. I have seen these before but cant find them anywhere. Im trying to replace my running boards because I think they are rusting from the inside out. They still look good from the viewable side, but they are rusting up on the bottom in a few small spots. So I would like to track these down if possible. Does anyone know the Ford part number for these?

You may have more luck searching for "rock sliders". I think those are more for protecting the rocker panel edge when off roading.

Can't say I've seen them before... and I've been on Escape boards for almost 8 years now. Good luck finding them.

Here are all the pictures I found. And I've narrowed it down to 2001-2002 Ford Escapes, XLS model, and it seems none of them have foglights(not sure if thats because they are XLS). But I still need help. There has to be a member that has these. I hope... Well If your out there please let me know.

try steelcraft. i think they make something called a tube step or oval tube step. I think it may be something with those words.

Looked through the brochures and found this:



Incase you can't read it, "Tubular Accent Bar. Made of anodized aluminium, it fits directly underneath the rocker panel. (Note: For appearance only - not designed to bear weight.)"

That is from the 2001 brochure. Couldn't find it in the 02 preview brochure, which shows the new options, but it was standard on the 03 XLS Sport 4x2, but not an option on the other models.
