Good luck this weekend and as you state, don't drill too far. You are probably right about the dealer not applying loctite or rustproofing. I am surprised that Ford doesn't have a shield that doesn't require drilling for the 2008.

I sure wish I could remember what I used on the drill holes when I installed the mud flaps on my Dodge Ram eight years ago. Whatever it was, it worked like a charm. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about my memory these days!

My dealer told me that the bug shield for the 2008 is not yet available. How can this be, if others on this board have already gotten one? Where did you get it?
I went to a few aftermarket sites and they all came up empty for a 2008 Escape. My dealer said it should be available in a couple of weeks.

I ordered it from Warnock Ford in Morristown NJ. It is made by Lunds, but is a genuine Ford Accessory. Go to another dealer

I ordered the bug shield for my 2008 escape from Ford accessories.com and took it to a ford dealership for the installation.

I saw it on the Ford accessories site, and even gave the dealer the part number.
If they don't have it when I get back from vacation, I'll try ordering it from Ford myself.

I save $$$$$ by ordering directly for Ford. The Ford dealer ship charged me 90.00 to install the bug shield and mud flaps.

This is not a "direct from Ford" ordering site. Only Ford DEALERS can sell Ford accessories, Ford parts and Ford vehicles to retail customers.
Fordaccesories.com is just a front end for Troy Ford of Troy Ohio.
I bet if you took a printout from that website to your local ford dealer, they would match the price.
If you want the factory Ford site, follow this link
This site allows you to send an order to your local participating dealer.

Anyone have pics of their 08 with bugshields on? I'm wanting one, just not sure what smoked would look like on the light ice blue.
