From what i gather we can use the focus trannys original guts and bellhousing half of the transaxle case, use the jaguar diff end of the case and jag center diff then use an escape irs or use a cobra irs with the jag diff mounted. Im going to do it guys. Might take me a year or two but when its done im doing a whole write up and video of the conversion and linking the video here as well as starting a new thread with the writeup and video. Hopefully it will become a sticky for anyone interested.
I do have several years of machining and metal fab experience so it shouldnt be a huge issue for me but ill try to do with it minimal custom work so the average joe can handle it

Does start to be like the V8 Focus - not much Focus left.
Maybe not quite like a 4WD based on a Jeep chassis....

|Tundrafoci||2013 escapes are based on same mk3 focus chassis. 2.0/1.6 ecoboosts use it so id imagine it holds to at least 300tq. Some with larger turbo and tune over that. model so possible to get Not sure how it would it would fit into mk1 chassis.|

The older Escapes at least were all a partial AWD setup, up to 30% to the rear on demand.
I saw one of the takeoff gear boxes split open on a stock one once - afaik it was an automatic version (up in the air on a lift) but that gave me a bad feeling for the overall strength of that system.

|Greenfox||But guys wait!! What about bolting a jag t-case to an escape awd mtx75??? Ditch the escape t-case. Use the cobra irs and adapt the jag diff or just use the escape irs!|
