Spied! Modded Escape

Postby Escape94 - August 22nd, 2014, 9:09 am

Spotted this good looking E while at the bank today. Not sure where the owner was though. What I spotted: plastidipped rims, grille, and headlamp housings, side marker reflector removed, rear debadge, 4wd badge added to side doors, carbon fiber wrapped side pillars, A/T tires, and either a whole exhaust system or just a new exhaust tip. This was the first modded E I have seen in my area aside from mine. Needless to say I was pretty excited.

From afar:

Interesting, he took out the amber reflector in those headlights.

I'm guessing this is an 08 for three reasons:

- front air dam
- 4WD emblems to cover up the pins left behind when he removed the Escape emblems
- V6 emblems on the fender that could've been added but properly weren't.

2008 or 2009 because

- no cutout for the liftgate release button
- no blind spot mirrors


Not going to lie, those headlights look better (but are illegal as a result of) with the amber reflector removed.

Ah, I see it now. Subtle. Owner had to have switched them out. Get that man or woman on this site!

He actually had removed the amber lens entirely. May be hard to tell from the picture but he did remove it.
