Ford already had the idea......in 2001 Ford Racing built a prototype car called the "tooner focus".....they used the parts from the escape but locked the rear diffs so it was full time AWD. Ricardo from F2 currently has the original kit removed from the tooner focus after it did its run in SEMA in 2001.

I beleive Ricardo was in the midst of re-producing the kit. I had at one time talked to him about it as he was thinking of selling the kit.....It has a custom front subframe, escape modified rear subframe, and escape trans and rear diff.
