Before you Buy: 2021 Bronco Sport Leveling Kits & Tire Options!

Integrating a leveling kit into your Bronco Sport's suspension package is ideal for enthusiasts who want to increase their payload capacity. Sagging suspension when towing or hauling heavy loads is dangerous and will hinder your performance in the long run. Beyond improving performance, a decent leveling kit will give your Bronco Sport an absolutely killer look. An aggressive stance is achieved when the back end rides an inch or two higher than the front end. Changing your stance affords you the flexibility of choosing larger tires and wheels as well.

Before you Buy: Make Towing with your F150 Easier and Safer!

There's no doubt that the 2009-2021 F150s can tow and haul in extremely impressive fashion, especially the later model years equipped with HD towing packages. That being said, even the most up-optioned, tow-ready F150 will start seeing noticeable levels of sag, instability, and other issues long before you reach your F150's factory GVWR, GCWR, or payload capacities. While there's no way to actually increase your F150's tow ratings, there's plenty of ways to make your F150 tow and haul a bit easier and win back handling, stability, and your running temperatures when you're towing or hauling heavy. Just about any of these 2009-2014 F150 towing upgrades or 2015-2020 F150 towing upgrades can help you out this summer and ensure you don't have to white-knuckle it to and from your intended destination.

Before You Buy: Off-Road Lights and Mounts for 2021 Broncos!

The revival of the Ford Bronco took the automotive world by storm when it was announced in July of 2020. If you were lucky enough to reserve yours, then there's a good chance you're already chomping at the bits to install aftermarket parts that'll have fellow owners wondering why their Bronco looks so plain.

Before you Buy: 2013-2020 F150 BOV & BPV Options!

The factory eBOV on the 2013-2020 F150s is not known for being the most reliable thing in the world. Not to mention, where's the fun in having a mean, turbocharged truck if you can't gear the VTA "PSHHHH". Granted, that "psh" is a bone of contention among the F150 faithful, though there's not much argument about the eBOV not being the most reliable thing in the world, especially if your truck is running around with extra boost pressure from aggressive tuning or turbo upgrades. But what does all this "VTA", "BOV", or "BPV" actually mean, and which do you actually want for your truck? There's a couple of different BOV and BPV options available for the 2013-2020 F150s, and we thought it would be a good idea to take a deep dive, since we do get a decent amount of questions on our various BOV options.

In-Depth Review: 2021 F150 3.5L EcoBoost STX 4WD Road Trip Review!

Considering our love for F-150’s here at Stage 3, it’ll come as no surprise that we put an order in for a brand new 2021 model as soon as we possibly could. The truck we optioned out is an Iconic Silver 2021 F-150 STX 4x4 with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6, SuperCrew cab and a 5.5ft bed. While we don’t do reviews on every single project truck that joins our fleet, we figured it would be worth the effort for this F-150 seeing as it’s been completely redesigned for 2021. In order to properly test this newest iteration of Ford’s best-selling truck, we opted to take it on a 1,100-mile-long road trip that would start just outside of Waco, TX and end at our headquarters in Phoenix, AZ. If you want to hear our thoughts and get the full review check out our 2021 F150 Road Trip Review video, but If you’re not strapped for time or simply have a pension for reading blogs, then here’s an in-depth look a the new 2021 F150.

Before you Buy: Headlight Options for 2018-2020 F150s!

The stock headlights on the 2018-2020 F150s actually have a pretty cool design, and are arguably some of the most stylish-looking OEM headlights around. That being said, their low-beam output really isn't that impressive and their chrome housings can cramp your F150 build's styling theme.

Before You Buy: Floor Mats & Liners For Your Toyota

Summer is coming to an end, which means Fall and Winter are just around the corner. Though the weather change is welcomed by many, especially here in Arizona, the drop in temperature also typically means rain and snow. We all know how much fun taking your off-road build out on the trails can be when it's muddy and slick, but that doesn't mean it's equally as fun to clean out the floorboards of your truck afterward. When the rainy, wet, and cold weather begins, make sure your Toyota is ready to handle the muck and grime that will be dragged into the cab with a set of awesome floor mats and liners. Here at Stage 3, we have an excellent selection of floor mats and liners for your 2005-2015 Toyota Tacoma, 2016-2020 Toyota Tacoma, 2010-2020 Toyota 4Runner, or 2014-2020 Toyota Tundra.

Before You Buy: Recovery and Safety Products For Super Dutys

Oftentimes, people buy Super Dutys because of their ability to tow and haul stuff in the bed. It doesn't matter if you have a 2004-2007 Super Duty with a Bulletproofed 6.0, a 2011-2016 6.7L, or even the new 2020 Super Duty with the V8 7.3L gas engine these trucks due to their size and stature are perfect workhorses. However, the truck is only half the battle when it comes to hauling as many people know. It does not matter if you have the perfect 2012 F350 diesel if your cargo is not completely secured. On the same note, it doesn't matter if you have the ultimate off-roading truck if you do not make sure that you have a decent winch on board to pull your truck out of tough situations. Gathering the proper recovery elements on your towing/ off-road rig is as important as making sure you have the proper off-road front and rear shocks before going out to conquer rough terrain. The three main things that you should make sure to have in your Super Duty at all times are some Recovery & Tow Straps, Traction Aids, and a decent Winch.

Before You Buy: Turbo Upgrades for 2011-2016 6.7L Super Dutys

The 2011-2016 6.7L Super Duty is a great truck. Some have even said that the 6.7L diesel is one of the top diesel engines that Ford has ever made behind the 7.3L diesel. However, like any other engine it has, it's common issues but those can easily be fixed. One of the most common issues with the 2011-2014 Super Dutys is the stock turbocharger (which they fixed in 2015-2016 model years). Mechanics have mentioned it is due to the fact it has ceramic ball bearings as opposed to steel ball bearings. Replacing a turbo is something that can get you greater reliability and even greater performance. Here at Stage 3 Motorsports, we have plenty of replacement turbochargers specifically created for these trucks that will give you peace of mind and your truck more power when combined with proper tuning.

The good news about front bumpers for the 2011-2020 F150s is that there's a huge selection to choose from. The bad news about front bumpers for the 2011-2014 F150s, 2015-2017 F150s, or the 2018-2020 F150s is that there's a huge selection to choose from.

While having (arguably) too many choices is never a bad thing, navigating the myriad of options when it comes to a pretty pricey part like a front or rear bumper is enough to increase your anxiety level to the nth degree. The good news is that there's a two basic types of bumpers: boxed steel and tubular "Baja" style bumpers, and while one isn't inherently better than the other, there are good reasons to choose one or the other that will help narrow down your options and get you the F150 front bumper that's perfect for your truck's looks and application.

While the Ford 9.75" rear end is one of the stoutest rear ends and axles in a half-ton truck, and while it's certainly able to handle nearly any application you have in mind for your awesome F150 or Raptor build, it's actually pretty annoying to actually live with, since it lacks a drain port and the fill port is placed on the side of differential housing and has this annoying tendency to rust itself to uselessness in places that use salt on the roads. That's why an F150 aftermarket differential cover is one of the most handy upgrades you can most handy upgrades you can make to a 9.75" equipped F150 or Raptor. Nearly all of these differential covers come with their own drain and fill ports, increased capacities, and revised designs that make them extremely effective upgrades over the stock cover.
