Off-Road with Stage 3's 2015 3.5L EcoBoost & 2011 F150 5.0L XL Project Trucks

Posted by Jason Locke on 8/22/2016 to Special Events
With our 2011 F150 XL Project Build well under way, and with a few changes made to our 2015 F150 3.5L EcoBoost Project Truck, we took both of these F150s up to the high scrub lands of Northern Arizona to put their suspension hardware and their tires through their paces. Both trucks performed extremely well with the 2011 F150's BOSS Trail Package 1 and 325/60R18 Toyo Open Country A/T IIs easily tearing through the soft and dry land, while the 2015 F150's Zone 6" Lift Kit with BOSS Front Coilovers and 35x12.50" Nitto Trail Grappler M/Ts let it crawl through desert washes and water runs without breaking a sweat. Check out all of our photos after the jump!

Just Added: Fabtech Lift Kits for the New 2017 Super Duty!

Posted by Jordan Gerblick on 8/9/2016 to New Products
The 2017 Super Duty is finally rolling out of the factory and we here at Stage 3 are as excited as anyone to get our hands on it and put the revamped 6.7L Powerstroke to the test. One of the first things we plan on doing is jacking the truck up to a proper off-roading height. Fabtech got a head start on the competition by developing a hefty variety of 4 - 6" lift and leveling kits for the new diesels, which are now available for pre-order right here at Stage 3, your trusted source for performance Ford parts and information. Fabtech builds a solid suspension system for nearly any budget, from simple 2" spacer leveling kits to complete 6" four-link suspension lift kits. If you aren't sure exactly what you want just yet, feel free to read on about the different benefits and drawbacks specific to each application.

Just Added: 2015-2017 Mustang CDC Outlaw Switchback Upper Grille w/ DRL Lights!

Posted by Erik Nep on 8/8/2016 to New Products

While your 2015-2017 Mustang may have come loaded from the factory with a bunch of awesome features and upgrades, the aftermarket industry has been hard at work following up with even more impressive ways to separate your Pony from the pack. Our friends over at Classic Design Concepts have created a couple new parts to help give your ride an even more impressive look with their new Outlaw Switchback Upper Grille with DRL lights. Mike, over at CDC was one of the first to outfit his GT with one of these new grilles and shared some great pictures. This upper grille is going to be hard to beat.

2011-2014 F150 IWE Problems and Fixes

Posted by Jason Locke on 8/5/2016 to Informative Articles
In what should come as no surprise to anyone is that a 2011 F150 with 174,000 miles has its fair share of problems, one of the most egregious for our 2011 F150 XL Project Truck was a broken IWE system that caused pretty horrendous grinding and sounds of suffering when first taking off and when turning. For the uninitiated, Ford's Integrated Wheel End (IWE) system is what locks and unlocks the front hubs when you change back and forth from 2WD and 4WD. The system works off of vacuum and functions a little counter-intuitively in that it uses vacuum to keep the hubs unlocked for 2WD and shuts off the vacuum to lock the front hubs for 4WD. While actually a pretty clever way of doing things, anything vacuum-operated is prone to problems, and the IWE system isn't an uncommon point of issues on any 4WD F150, regardless of engine option. Hit the jump to see how we solved the IWE problems on our very own project truck!

Off-Road with Stage 3's Supercharged 5.0L F150s!

Posted by Jason Locke on 7/25/2016 to Special Events
With a pair of supercharged 5.0L F150s in our project truck stable, it was high time to get them together for some serious off-road action up in the high desert and scrub land of Northern Arizona. Thus, we here at Stage 3 Motorsports took a trip northward with our 2015 F150 5.0L Project Truck equipped with a Whipple 2.9L Supercharger Kit, our 2013 F150 5.0L STX equipped with a ProCharger Stage 2 Supercharger System, and our trusty 2006 F250 6.0L which is not supercharged, but was there as our support truck in case we broke anything. Anyway, we took some time to thrash these F150s around off-road while taking some very lovely pictures and video of all the fun and games.

Just Added: 1999-2016 F250 & F350 XD Rockstar 3 Wheel w/ Custom Color Insert Options!

Posted by Erik Nep on 7/21/2016 to New Products

While XD series wheels are already known for being some of the most aggressive off-road selections for the 1999-2016 F250 and F350 Super Duty, their new Rockstar 3 takes things to a level of customization that will blow your mind. From a Beadring, Midspoke, Splitspoke or center cap inserts, you can add an additional punch of color to take things to the next level to truly make your tough Super Duty stand out from the pack. Depending on what look you're going for, this wheel allows for easy installation of custom color inserts to kick off your show-quality build and turn heads. This Rockstar III wheel comes standard in either a matte black or matte black machined finish, each with black accents. Where the fun comes in, is you just simply upgrade to any of their custom color inserts, and create whatever color scheme you have in mind with these interchangeable parts.

Just Added: 2004-2016 F150 Subwoofer Upgrades from MTX!

Posted by Jason Locke on 7/15/2016 to Just Added
Getting some extra bass in your F150 in a clean package feels like "inexpensive, easy, clean: choose two" at times, and finding a way to get a powerful subwoofer installed into your F150 while keeping a great look in your 2004 to 2016 F150's interior is much easier said than done. That being said, MTX has a great solution with their Thunderform Loaded Subwoofer Systems. These awesome kits feature a complete fiberglass subwoofer enclosure and an MTX Terminator Subwoofer that bolts right into your truck and adds a deep, loud bass sound in practically no time. The MTX Thunderform systems are available in two versions: a Loaded System that includes the enclosure and subwoofer and a Loaded and Amplified System that includes the enclosure, subwoofer, and 200-watt amplifier for powering the sub for even more bass and response. The MTX F150 Subwoofer Systems are an excellent way to get your truck really bumpin' in practically no time at all. You can find our F150 MTX Loaded and Loaded and Amplified Subwoofer Kits in our 2009-2014 F150 Audio & Visual Section or our 2004-2008 F150 Audio & Visual Section.
