Door swap first gen to second gen

Postby Scramm - April 9th, 2021, 6:59 pm

So I will start by saying I tried to search door under the exterior.mods category too see if this question had been asked before and I turned up with maybe 6 results none of which apply to me... So sorry if this post has been made elsewhere also sorry if I'm posting in wrong category.

I have friend with a first gen escape and he has a wrecked 2009 escape (which I believe is second gen)
He wants to take the doors from the 09 escape and put them on the first gen that he has, is it possible? I know escapes are pretty easy to interchange parts but basically I'm just asking on here to see if anyone else has done this or knows if it's possible... He also plans to change bumpers and grill etc but his first swap would be doors as his first gen are rotted out.

It'd likely bolt up, but wouldn't close as the body lines are different where they dip in and stick out and the door would interfere.

Thanks for the replies! I kind of figured they would have an issue closing/mounting properly. He measured the two different styles of doors and he claims they are same size...

Well that answers that question. Now I'm off to search the forums for answers on swapping front end and rear body parts...
