We originally had a high lift kit installed in our 2010 5.0 when we had the F350. It raised the trailer 1.5". When we got a new truck (lowered F150) we had the kit removed. Makes it a lot easier to get in and out of the trailer. No secondary step needed, although a double entry step is available. I can't see why a lift couldn't be put in any trailer.

I assume that means it is a spacer, bolted to the mounting plates which are welded to the frame, and with the axle assembly bolted to the spacer. I agree, this is applicable to any model with a Torflex (that is, any Escape other than the 5.0TA).

I haven't seen this on an Escape - none of the units I've seen had any spacer between the Torflex axle and the frame... but they have all been at a dealer (long ago) or the factory (demonstrators), and all were probably stock (no high-lift option).
