Jp probably a question for you but if anyone knows please feel free,, but will the 2008 mariner tail lights work ona 2008 escape? I have only seen them on the mariners from a distance but they seem to look pretty similar
Nope, they won't fit. The housings and openings are different sizes.
But the 2008+ Tribute tails will fit a 2008+ Escape, with one minor problem: there's no rear reflector on the 2008+ Tribby's tail lamp housing. The rear reflectors on the 2008+ Tribby are in the rear bumper.
