    The only problem with a lift kit on an Escape is that Past a 2" lift it causes major handling problem so it's would cost a lot more then a normal lift on any other vehicle so i'm gunna try and find a cheap jeep

    That sounds like the right idea, especially since the Escape can only do so much even with a lot of money thrown at it. There are some good deals going on around here now, welcome to the site.
