As much as we don't miss having to replace throttle cables and manually readjust throttle bodies, the hesitation you can get with your average fly-by-wire throttle controls can be annoying. That's where Pedal Commander's Throttle Controllers come in. These plug-and-play modules allow you to adjust your vehicle's throttle inputs so that you get improved response and perfectly dialed-in throttle control. The Pedal Commander controllers come with four pre-set modes with adjustable sensitivity for each so that you can find the sweet spot for your vehicle's throttle. Check after the jump for a full list of Pedal Commander applications!

While our dear friends over at SCT are still diligently working to provide support for the 2017 F150 3.5L EcoBoosts and 2017 Raptors, HP Tuners beat them to the punch and 5-Star Tuning has had some tremendous success in tuning for both the 2017 F150 3.5L EcoBoosts and the 2017 Raptor 3.5L HO EcoBoost trucks. We're now offering both a 2017 F150 3.5L EcoBoost nGauge with 5-Star Tunes and a 2017 Raptor 3.5L EcoBoost nGauge with 5-Star Tunes. The nGauge is an easy to use device, and 5-Star's custom tunes are adding huge amounts of power to the 2017 3.5L EcoBoost trucks!

Unsurprisingly, a lot of our manufacturers saw the massive bumper openings on the 2017 Raptors as an opportunity for mounting up an impressive array of off-road lights, and our friends over at Raptor Lights have thrown their hat into the ring with their Triple Fog Light Bucket Bezel Kit. This kit can hold three lights on each side of your Raptor's bumper, giving it an impressive amount of off-road light output in a clean package. The kit comes with a pair of KC Flex Series Single Spot Beam Lights with black bezels, but you can choose up to four other 3" cube lights to fit the other mounting points. The end result is pretty awesome!

Love taking your trailer or boat out for the weekend but hate the hassle that comes with hooking it up to your truck? I'm about to make your day. Trailer Valet's trailer dolly systems feature high/low gear chain drive cranks that let you easily maneuver your trailer through inclines and tight spaces like garages and driveways. The gear reduction mechanism on the Trailer Valet 5X is powerful enough to move a 5000 lbs. trailer with a 500 lbs. tongue weight, while the Trailer Valet XL can handle a trailer or boat up to 10,000 lbs. with a 1,000 lbs. tongue weight.

When Mishimoto released their Intercoolers for the 2011-2014 F150 3.5L EcoBoosts, we knew it was only a matter of time before they churned out more goodies for the EcoBoost F150s. Well, they have in the form of a new 2011-2014 F150 EcoBoost Cold-Side Intercooler Tube, Hot-Side Intercooler Tubes, and a Complete Intercooler Tubing Kit. Mishimoto's F150 EcoBoost intercooler tubes will help your truck gain some power while improving throttle response and spool, and don't even strictly require tuning. Mishimoto even throws in high-quality silicone couplers and t-bolt clamps, which is a great touch. These kits are available for pre-order, with an estimated release date of mid-July.
Now that we're starting to see a good number of 2017 F250 and F350s out on the road, you might be looking for a way to set your own Super Duty apart from the rest. Well, if that's the case your search ends today. Addictive Desert Designs has made quite a name for themselves in the aftermarket, namely for their insanely "addictive" designs and functional exterior accessories. Their ridiculously awesome Stealth and Stealth R bumpers are the latest to hit Stage 3 Motorsports and serve as reminders that when it comes to style and utility, ADD is still king.

While we had confirmation of cat-back exhaust fitments for up to the 2017 3.5L EcoBoosts for a good while now, downpipes were questionable. With a new transmission and revised motor, many manufacturers were concerned that changes would have to be made. However, those fears have come to pass, and it's confirmed that all of 2015-2016 F150 3.5L EcoBoost Downpipes now fit to the 2017 3.5L EcoBoost F150 model year. While that's certainly great news, there is a slight hiccup in that SCT still does not have tuning support ready for the 2017 F150s and Raptors with a 3.5L EcoBoost. Hopefully that rolls around sooner, rather than later.

While we certainly do love all of Ford's F150s, one of the greatest travesties in the automotive world was that our dear Ford overlords didn't bring the global T6 Ranger to the United States after the US Ranger went away in 2012. Luckily, Ford realized the error of their ways (probably by looking at Tacoma, Colorado, and Frontier sales figures) and are bringing the Ranger back for the 2019 model year. The folks over at Motor-1.com managed to score some spy shots of the the 2019 Ranger testing up in Colorado. While still camo'd out, we're pretty excited about a 4x4 Ford truck with a shorter wheelbase and narrower track than the F150s to satisfy our trail-running needs.

Our 2008 Shelby GT500 is a pinnacle of modern car design and power. The 1966 Mustang it met the other day was a product of another era, but sitting them side by side, it's almost impossible to miss the family resemblance. The 1966 Pony has its original Wimbledon White paint, an Aqua interior, and a 289ci V8 that was good for an SAE Gross 200 horsepower and 282lb-ft of torque. It's still in wonderful condition, and got to have some fun out in the West Valley with its grandkid.

While a standard off-road LED light bar is a powerful addition to just about any off-road vehicle, one of the big problems with them is that you have to mount multiple light bars in order to get a beam pattern for all occasions.

The Rigid Adapt Series is the next evolution of off-road LED light bar technology, and they're available for pre-order right now!

Last month a few of us at Stage 3 packed our bags (and recovery gear) and took the nearly two-hour trek from Phoenix to the forests and cinder hills of Flagstaff, Arizona for the chance to really put our project trucks through the paces. Our five-truck caravan included our 2015 F150 3.5 Ecoboost Project Truck riding on a 6" Zone Off-Road lift complete with Fox 2.5 Remote Reservoir Coilovers and 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers. Needless to say, our stocky 2017 F250 was up against some stiff competition. Thankfully, our Super Duty was equipped with the beastly BDS 4" Radius Arm Lift paired with 35" Toyo Open Country tires, a combination that undoubtedly spared the F250 from embarrassment more than a few times during our off-road review.
