Alright guys just finished up retrofitting the rear bumper assembly from a 2005 ford escape no boundaries so I can have the rear bumper mounts for the rack but I also wanted to keep the 2" recover for my trailer hitch and the factory bumper I have successfully done the swap as well as added 2inch spacers on all four wheels will post pictures of step by step instruction guide to anyone thinking of doing it.

Here's some of the picture had to cut off the small hitch welded onto the no boundaries escape as well as remove the welded on nuts (if I was smart and kept the bolts from the no boundaries escape I wouldn't of had to) then mounted in place of the factory bumper sized up the bumper cover and cut out the holes for the rack mounting then spray painted with no rust rust-oleum before buttoning it all up and testing it (I also painted to no boundaries rack black to match my color scheme)

Finished product I would definitely have saved about an hour of time if I had kept the bolts from the donner no boundaries escape the mercury's mounts with the nuts towards the inside of the car and the no boundaries mounts with the nuts welded onto the bumper towards the outside of the car but other than that was a fairly easy install took me about 3 hours to do

I just put some door handles from Lowe's on my bumper to hold it.

It's worked well enough for cargo carriers, bikes, and ruck sacks.
