2002 Ford Escape for scrap.....

Its wrecked. High miles, tranny going out. All kinds of issues with it. So i took the roof rack off and tossed it onto my hard top. Have to say i really like that.

Other than maybe some switches, what other things could i make use of off this thing before i have it towed. Not sure about AC compressor. If I would be able to use it for OBA. But i figure its going in the trash, i may as well grab what i can. And if you are in the NW Washington. I can toss you some parts for free if you like.

Have you thought about trying the seats?

I always like the electronic rear view mirrors if it has it. Tells direction and temp, pretty spiffy for a YJ.

Also, I wanted to ask how you attached the roof rack to your hard top? Did you just bolt it on? How do you prevent leaks?

@ashland82391 I thought about the seats. But the worn out ones in my Jeep are more comfortable.

@Apollo12227 As far as the roof rack. I drilled holes just big enough for the bolt. Then lubed it with 100% silicone. Went underneath and put 4" by about 4' rips of 3/16 aluminum inline with the frame of the rack. Not before adding more silicone in between the plate and roof. About 10 washers with more silicone and some locking nuts to finish it off. Must have done a good job as it has not leaked once. Once work down at the ship yard picks up for some winter work. I will add to the frame a little inside. Would be nice to have it support a little more weight. Works really well. Ive had my downhill bike on there and the top does fine. I would not suggest putting a lot of up there. But some camping gear will sure fit. Cant even hear it up there. As if that is a surprise......
