A quick trip over to the DG Motorsports website shows this to be called an "Open Air Escape".
http://www.dgmotorsports.com/showcars.php
It's the 12th photo in, and there are about 9 pictures.

"The DGM Open Air Escape has been designed and built for the young-at-heart outdoor enthusiast. A removable hard top, functional tailgate and a wide open sunroof complete the open air package. Live the adventure - don't just go places, experience them."

Enjoy!

I thought I had seen one, but I think it was the Explorer in this configuration, which of course has been in Ford's product line for a few years.

Right, DG Motorsports. It's like an old Bronco as the back part is a lift off hard top.

Here is what they say about it.

I actually still really like the Explorer Sport Trac and I believe they haven't been made since 2005? Anyway, I on the other hand don't like the Escape pick up. It just looks unfinished, like a chop job and personally to me, a bad one. :(

I almost bought a 2008 until I test drove my Escape. They stopped production in 2010 I believe. It has about a 4ft bed which is pretty small but I would have been fine with it. The bed on this Escape would have no value at all IMO.
