Yellow (amber) fog lights

Izzy,

Welcome aboard.

I viewed the pics of what I believe is your red Escape.
Question:

Where did you get the yellow(amber) fog light lens for the Escape? Was it a total replacement of the fog lights or is it just a front lens cover replacement? "Inquiring minds need to know."

I would love to get my hands on them if they are available. I think the amber fog light is more effective and they look awesome! I saw amber fog lights on a Lexus SUV and they were...AWESOME.

Richie

Richie,

I have the same thing on my Escape. SUVFX.Com makes a yello film that covers the bottom portion of the foglamp. I didn't think it would work, but it does and it looks great. I think it was 5 bucks or so. Jim's website is still down but the number is on the site. I fact I posted the number under "Modifications" when I was questioning about the website.

Im not sure how much the brush gaurd goes for retail, i picked mine up off of ebay for 275, (he had it on his for 2 months, it was basically new) he through in the PIAA's 520's for 100 more.

Im really happy with the manik brush gaurd, looks the best in my opinion. Dont bother getting it installed by someone, it can be done in about 30 mins by yourself easily. (dont even have to cut the cladding)

If you do pick one up, heres a trick i learned different than the install steps: Theres these two "flaps" of cladding at the very bottomish of your bumper, not visible unless your under the vehicle, the mount for the brush gaurd goes right where they are, so you are supposed to cut them, dont cut em... simly "fold them up inside the bumper"

Question D I Y ???

This was do it yourself easy? So I take it you mean there was no drilling required? This just connects to existing screw in holes?

I just checked the Escape ebay link on the main page here, no grill guards currently displayed in the auctions

What are the best sources & best prices for a good quality brush guard on Escapes? I would probably have someone install it for me.

On Second Though

On Second Thought... after looking at it, if the install is $75 bucks or less, id probably just get it installed.... Although if your tight on cash, self install is possible, you simply take off the two big black "underside engine covers" that cover the engine and pullies from road dirt or whatever, they are held on by screws, next you fold up into bumper the two extended flaps on the bottom of your cladding (youll see it, they are two 4x4 inch "extra cladding" peices. next there are two brackets that get bolted onto your tow hook mount and the underside of the frame, the hole on the frame part needs to be enlarged by just a hair, reason being that it is a comletly sealed area so you cant just drop in a bolt and nut, you need to insert the bolt (it has an attached arm on it) through another adjecent hole, and drop it down into the the next hole, but since you are feeding it into the hole via the arm thats welded on it, it is dropping down at a slight angle, thus it doesnt quit fit, although once its down in its proper place, it seats fine. (i know it sounds wierd, but youll understand once you try to install it) once those are done, you lay the brush gaurd in front of the truck, line up the bottom holes of the brush gaurd with the holes on the newly installed mount, drop in your bolts (dont tighten all the way yet), pivit the brush gaurd upright, drop in the next set of bolts (dont tighten all the way). Now the brush gaurd can be slid in closer or farther away from the front bumper, you need to slide it close enough to the bumper so that it doesnt have a huge gap, but far enough away to allow enough clearance for the hood to open up and close without crushing your hands inbetween that and the brush gaurd (or if you have a bug gaurd or somthing on your hood,make sure you have enough room)
Final step is these set of small brackets that bolt right into factory holes underneath your grill...

hmm, now that i re-read this, it makes no sense.. hah.. sorry ill up the pictures to www.izzycreamcheese.com/escape they will be the newest ones...

Anyway, everything just goes into factory holes, and is easy to do, except for other two holes you have to enlargen the slightest bit. If your handy, and broke, go for it, if not, get it done

Can a local mechanic install the grille guard or do I have to go somewhere else?

Philips screwdriver, two sizes of wrenches (dont remember which), and either a dremmel or a drill or a file or something to enlargen those two holes a hair.
