Tailgate swap

Postby Rime of AM - August 27th, 2020, 11:12 pm

My '10 Escape tailgate is severely rusted, I have found an '08 in the correct color. As far as I can tell the only difference is the b/u camera. I saw another post about a '12 to a '12.
Does anyone know if the '08 will physically swap onto my '10?

Thanks

Physically I don't think there will be an issue. As far as I know the only real difference is the placement of the tailgate opening button, but I would assume you could just run the wiring to the correct spot.

Thanks Vpasla1, I did not notice the difference. I heard the yard had one, but got there after they closed (limited covid hours) they let me in to verify the hatch was there, no rust and color code was all I looked for.

'08s use a different door handle that's further up than the hole towards the bottom that 2009-2012's use.

I did get the hatch, but have not had time to make the swap yet.
