Howdy all from the GWN (Great White North) New joiner,Old Lurker. This forum has got to be one (if not the one) of the best Escape/Tribute boards around. Thanks everyone for making it what it is. Saved plenty of Canadian Pesos by following some of the advice over the years. First on a 02 Tribute then a 03,now its on to a 08 after the girlfriend had a unfortunate accident and the vehicle was written off.
Found a great deal on a high km (265,000) base model 08 Tribute with the ever popular 3.0 L (Man, I love that little power plant on the highway). So now its on to working on the negatives (poor headlights, weird voltage drop, drivers seat to low for my miniature lady friend, yes I know, use a low tech pillow and any other things that crop up in the future. Oh and yes I'm also a Jeep Freak since 1959 :) Have a 60 CJ6, 82 CJ8 and a rusty (bought for the running gear) 84 CJ7

Merry Christmas all and a Happy New Year.

Thanks guys and good morning. Going to change the alternator today(thank the big guy) its now in the front and see what I can do with the darn poor headlights. Well they are better then the 02/03 but not a whole lot. Already put in the Phillips Extreme Vision but still not good enough. Tried some LEDs on the 03 before "The Crash" but you know for 150 bucks it just wasn't "there" either. Oh well the search goes on.

Howdy Max. Thanks, Also owned a 77 CJ5 and a 86 MJ with a diesel engine. Loved that little truck, and a 86 diesel XJ for parts. Now looking for a Ford M38A1. Used to drive one when I was in the Military Police back in the 70's (Ya I'm old)
