no offense, but the problem with suggestions like these are that they are parts that are more rare than ones we are already discussing.

however, if you care to be productive....make friends with someone that has one and measure the diameter and number of splines of the transfer case mounted to the transmission between the trans and passenger axle.

I know several places I could get measurements from a VR4 AWD system on a junker but I have no interest in doing an AWD swap, it was just a suggestion for someone to check out if they were interested. Don't shoot down ideas until you know they won't work.

Nope.....remember its a north/south (longitutional) installation an Escape is a east/west (transverse) install. The setup is similar to a Ford Sierra except with american sourced parts..... 6 gears and 6 cylinders!!
