That'll be a ton of work. Keep in mind the AWD escapes are still FWD based. If you feel you can do it, then by all means try. But you'll definitely have a lot of work cut out for you. If you want the 4x4/ AWD system, it'd be better to just start with that to begin with.

The body should be the same, just the parts bolted onto it are different.
