Ok been on here a couple months now, figure i should post some pics up :) The first set is how i found her . . . after several months and a whole LOT of fixes you cant even see in the pics shes running like a clock and im getting happy with where she is at . . . not that im done by a long shot >=)

Before :


(Please note the 76,548 stickers on the car)


(came with the Westin bar, that made me happy)


(other then being dirty the engine bay came with 3 bad coilpacks . . . in the back of course)

Now :


(I painted/installed taillight covers, the old hitch took 2 hours, a blowtorch and a sledge hammer to get out of the receiver so i could put the step in, and the rear wiper arm took an hour with a dremel to cut off to replace with a new one with a good spring in it, tires are some nice Sumitomos that im loving )


(covered the grill, replaced the bulbs with silverstars, still need to replace both headlight housings but m not looking forward to taking everything off the front of the truck to get to them)


(engine now runs like a top and the MAC intake gives it a nice growl and about 19mpg average)


(bluetooth headunits are so cool :) and i replaced all the speakers, all Pioneer stuff)

Looks great, I bet it runs good on new coilpacks, my I4 had one cyl bad on it's coil and the mis-firing drove me insane, not that I've recovered any but I'm much happier with a new coilpack.

I'll second those tires looking nice. Gives it a stance that makes it look like it has more ground clearance. If you know off the top of your head, what size are those?

Nice Escape! :thumb:

That's the next thing on my list along with plugs and a manifold gasket. I had also read something about changing the boot that goes over the C-O-P. I really need to sit down and figure out all the things I can clean and/or change while I have the manifold off...

Dasha and Colleen both have rear wings. I believe they both got them off the internet primed but not painted. I'm not sure if they got OEM or aftermarket though...

Awesome! Can't wait to see it on your Mariner. :)
Actually, Dasha found and posted the spoilerexpress.com link a good while back. And her Mariner looked so hot with the spoiler that I just had to have one. :D
Thanks again, Dasha ! :beer: :heart: :beer:
