Good luck.
It would be good to know if anyone is home at FTS.

A taste of what we are chasing.
I saw a pic of a set on a member here and the clearance looked better than this pic

"FTS Rear Lower Arms" is the thread.
Here is a pic from the thread.
Bender is the owner.
An 05 tribute.

It was a really odd process. :?

See If I have any better luck. TR

Hey mate.
Did FTS ever get back to you?
I have heard nothing from them though I have not tried since.

Crickets.... :roll: pretty disappointed. Not sure what's up with them. :confused:

I went through my old skid plate emails to them and found another e-mail address to try.
I'll give them one more chance.

FTS got back to me. The email was hiding in junk.
They are still out there.
I got a price on control arms $309
Waiting to hear about skid plates.

FTS sent me an email reply that they don't do the skid plates any more.

I bought a FTS skid plate for our 2002 Escape in late 2016. I paid $220US plus $140US shipping. It fits well and is pretty sturdy. We are selling the car and are looking to get rid of the skid plate as I am not sure many buyers would think it is a useful addition. It is in good shape. Is anyone interested for $200CAN? We are located in Vancouver, Canada.

Thanks, Al

Hey there!

Thank you for sharing this with us. My question is how does it hold after 4 years, and whats the brand of your skid plate?

I'm also planning on installing one to my 2018 escape https://parts.levittownfordparts.com/oe ... fl3z9a147e

Is that the same skid plate that you've installed?
