Focus ST modders and enthusiasts, this is how it's done. We got word of this wicked ST from a couple of Stage 3 customers who did all of the modifications themselves with the occasional helping hand from a mechanic friend.

Destin Cantrell Showing Off Some New Hardware and Moves!

Friend of Stage 3 and Freestyle Motorcross (FMX) rider Destin Cantrell was kind enough to send us some more photos of his truck and the SCT X4 Tuner with 5-Star Custom Tunes that he got from us here at Stage 3, and he was even kind enough to show off his motorcycle, as well as what he does for his day job. Yes, that is correct. His job is to fly through the air on a motorcycle at tree-top level with usually just his fingertips maintaining a grasp on the thing. Needless to say, my job looks a smidge boring by comparison.

FMX Star Destin Cantrell's 2015 F150 with 5-Star Tuning from Stage 3!

Just about anyone who knows anything about dirt bikes has heard of Freestyle Motorcross (affectionately dubbed FMX), and if you've heard of FMX, you've probably heard of rider Destin Cantrell. If you haven't, this video on YouTube should give you an idea of what both FMX and Destin are all about. In any case, Destin's other mode of transportation is a 2015 2WD F150 XLT Sport Package with a 3.5L EcoBoost, for which he just purchased an SCT X4 with 5-Star Custom tuning from your friends here at Stage 3. Destin even had some kind words to say about the tuning (which I swear we didn't make him say at knifepoint): "The SCT tuner is awesome, basically the power I lost from adding the bigger tires I got right back with my custom tune. Definitely a recommended product and can't wait to see what else we can add to it. Thanks Stage3Motorsports." The truck is also equipped with a ReadyLift 2.25" Leveling Kit and a full set of 18x9" Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 Pro 2 Matte Black Wheels wrapped in a set of 305/60R18 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ P3 tires. Destin was kind enough to send in some awesome photos of his truck. Check them all out after the jump, and keep an eye out for this sweet ride the next time your find yourself at an FMX event. Good luck at your next event, Destin!

Your choice of wheels can make or break your hyper-aggressive F150 build. Luckily for our customer Mical, his choice of wheels made his aggressive 2013 F150 FX4 absolutely pop.

2015 F150 5.0L Platinum with a BDS 6" Coilover Suspension Lift Kit!

A big lift kit is exactly what the doctor ordered for the 2015 to 2016 F150s. The new, aggressive body style looks absolutely amazing put up in the air on a big wheel and tire combination. F150forum user, Zach, sent us in a bunch of images of his 2015 F150 5.0L Platinum and it's equally awesome BDS 6" Coilover Lift Kit after spotting our thread showing off our 2015 F150 5.0L Project Truck's BDS 4" Coilover Lift Kit. The combination of the big BDS lift and his choice of Fuel Maverick 22x12" Two-Piece Wheels with a -44mm offset with their 35x12.50" Toyo Open Country M/Ts makes for one heck of combination that does the truck proud!

A 2014 F150 5.0L with Fox Coilovers, Solo Exhaust, and a ton of Lighting Mods!

A mean and clean F150 build really makes our day, and Connor, the proud owner of a 2014 F150 5.0L, sent us in a bunch of images of his truck that's outfitted with a bunch of mods purchased from Stage 3. Despite his litany of the Rigid Industries lighting components, Connor's truck has it's sleek factory appearance, mostly due to his clever use of Rigid Industries' Dually Flush Mount Lights, D-Series Fog Light Brackets with White Dually Spot LED Lights, and a Rigid Industries 20" E-Series Lower Bumper Mount Bracket Kit, with the cherry on top being a Raptor-Style Grille Light Kit. Some extra front lift is provided by a set of Fox 2.0 Coilovers, while a much more aggressive V8 sound is generated by his Solo 4" Single-Exit Cat-Back Exhaust Kit. Overall, an excellent-looking truck all-around!

Just Added: 2011-2015 F250/F350 Super Duty Bushwacker Pre-Painted Pocket-Style Fender Flares!

One of the best additions you can throw onto the exterior of your 6.7L Super Duty truck, especially if it's been lifted or leveled and equipped with a set of rugged off-road tires, is a set of fender flares. Here at Stage 3, we have some of the most economic and awesome-looking fender flares you'll find on the market and they come from our friends over at Bushwacker. The new 2011-2015 F250/F350 Bushwacker Pocket-Style Fender Flares come custom pre-painted in matching Ford Super Duty colors so now you don't have to go through the whole hassle of having to get them sent off to your local paint shop to get them matched to the right color and have to wait for weeks to get them installed. Instead, it's as simple as ordering your set of (4) and easily bolting them onto your truck without having to waste extra time and money. Considering the high additional costs of getting fender flares custom painted to match your exact Ford paint color, these are a relatively inexpensive and much easier way to get your Super Duty looking more aggressive without having to wait forever for the more aggressive look you're trying to achieve.

A Gorgeous 2015 F150 5.0L Platinum with Suspension Mods!

A lot of folks have been ragging on the 2015 F150s for their looks, tiny tires, and whatever else. However, it's been our contention that no one really care for a bone-stock truck, much less a baseline XL or XLT work truck that were the first to hit the dealers back in November. Case in point is this beautiful 2015 F150 Platinum from F150forum.com member Lukasz, who let us share these photos. The truck is decked out with a few just-confirmed 2015 F150 leveling and suspension parts, including 2014 to 2015 F150 Auto Spring 2" Spacers and an Auto Spring 3" rear block, as well as 1.5" wheel spacers, 35" BF Goodrich KO2 tires, a Corsa 4" twin exhaust tip, Line-Xed wheel wells, Line-Xed bed, a BakFlip G2 tonneau cover, and 20% tint. The end result is this extraordinary creation that is only bound to get better as time goes on and more parts become available. Thanks Lukasz for the images and the sweet and clean truck build!

Sherman Township Roush Stage 3 Police Interceptor Pictures

While most of our customers' vehicles are pretty awesome, every once in a great while something pulls into our lot that's truly unique and somewhat terrifying at the same time. This is especially true if you're like us and drive a bit "aggressively" around town (some of us more than others). Straight from Michigan all the way down here to Phoenix came this monster of Pony, decked out in all the official police regalia of Sherman Township and ready to pull you over. Meet this heavily customized Stage 3 Roush Mustang. With a modified Roush M90 supercharger, a built automatic transmission, and a GT500 front end, this Pony makes sure you won't be able to run from the law.

2011 5.0L with a 624 Horsepower Whipple Supercharger

Apparently it's "Whipple Friday" here at Stage 3. There wasn't a memo, it's just kind of how it all worked out. Moving on from Miguel's 2008 Mustang GT, we now have Al's 2011 5.0L Mustang with a 624hp Whipple Supercharger kit. Al was kind enough to bring his Pony down to the shop so we could get some lovely photos of his blower installed, as well as nice video of his Stainless Works Cat-Back Exhaust kit. This Mustang sounds amazing with just a hint of supercharger whine in the upper RPMs and a deep, mellow tone from the cat-back system. Al even had some pretty snazzy Mickey Thompson tires installed to help get the power to the ground. One thing we didn't see was the 2011-2014 Steeda Tri-Ax short throw. You can't win them all. Check out the photos below of Al's awesome ride and make sure to read his fantastic reviews on all these Mustang performance parts!

A Beautiful 2011 5.0L and Equally Beautiful Woman

One of our mot upstanding local customers, Alejandro, paid us a visit last week and brought his 2011 Mustang GT with him. This car has a long story behind it, but let's just say it came back from the dead and was born again into one of the most awesome Ponies hanging around the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area. Alejandro has thrown just about everything and the kitchen sink at this Mustang with everything from power adders, exhaust upgrades, aggressive custom tuning, styling mods, and suspension components making it a total overhaul. Not bad for needing to be pulled out of a ditch a few months ago -- more on that later.

[UPDATED]A Bullitt Mustang with an E-Force Supercharger and TruFiber Hood

The S197 Bullitt Mustangs are some cool Ponies, but they can be a little difficult to shop for due to their unique under-hood setup with their unique strut tower brace and inlet tubing. Well, that didn't stop Dana out of Pennsylvania from transforming his 2008 Bullitt into one of the most awesome Mustangs that we're seen in a long, long time. This sweet Bullitt just installed an Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger System and a wicked TruFiber SVT-Style hood that he ordered from Stage 3. More importantly, he sent us some awesome photos that we're more than happy to show off.
