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. The good news is that there's plenty of headlight upgrade options available for the 2018-2020 F150s that can get your truck a great look and/or improved lighting output in pretty short order. The bad news is that because there's so many options, it gets pretty tough to navigate what's best for you, your truck, and your budget. We're to help, and we've personally tested out may headlight options for the F150s over the years and we have a ton of hands-on experience.

Before you Buy: 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Fender Flares!

The 2019-2020 Ford Ranger can be quite a capable vehicle with the addition of a lift kit and large off-road tires, but to protect your investment, we recommend you pair these upgrades with 2019-2020 Ford Ranger fender flares. These useful aftermarket components provide extra tire coverage and protection against dangerous off-road obstacles. They also add an aggressive, unique look on the sides of your Ranger. Some states even require complete tire coverage, so fender flares may be a necessity depending on local laws. With many different manufacturers, finishes and styles, there are plenty of options to find the perfect fender flare for you.

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.

Before you Buy: 2011-2020 F150 Boxed Steel vs. Tubular "Baja" Bumpers!

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. We here at Stage 3 Motorsports have F150 bumpers out the wazoo, and there's even more that we'll probably add in the future. 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.

Before you Buy: 2019-2020 Ford Ranger A-Pillar Off-Road Light Mounts Breakdown!

Any Ford truck that yearns to flirt with treacherous off-road paths needs the assistance of off-road lighting to travel safely, and the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger is no exception. Off-road light mounts for the Ranger can replace or add to your stock lighting so you can see every obstacle that comes your way. The area around the A-Pillar should not be left untouched. One of the best options you can add is some A-Pillar Light Mounts to your aftermarket build. These lights serve as non-invasive, cost-effective way to add exceptional lighting in front of the truck. Who should you trust to fulfill your lighting needs? Diode Dynamics, Baja Designs or ZROADZ provide great light mounts that fit above your hood. While we went with Baja Designs to light our 2019 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 Project Truck, any of these lighting options will make a huge difference.

SEMA 2020 Officially Cancelled

SEMA 2020 has officially been canceled due to the current COVID-19 spikes taking place across the south and west parts of the United States. Considering the entire point of SEMA is being "hands on" with products and vendors, this news really isn't that surprising. It is unfortunate, however, and we at Stage 3 had some big plans for SEMA 2020 with our 2020 F150 5.0L Giveaway Truck functioning as the centerpiece. On the other hand, not being in the middle of a gargantuan viral incubator in the middle of Las Vegas likely to cause even more attrition among industry manufacturers and vendors alike is probably a good thing. As for our project truck, there's some good news and bad news. The good news is that we're still giving the truck away to one lucky winner in November, and you can still enter over on our Giveaway page. The bad news is that you won't have much of an opportunity to check out our truck, especially if you're out of state. Our friends over at SEMA will have something more official out shortly, but if you were waiting with bated breath to see our truck and meet us at SEMA, now would be the time to exhale into your face mask.

Before You Buy: F150 9.75" Differential Covers!

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. However, there's more than few to choose from which can make finding the right one for your kind of a pain.

Before you Buy: 2019-2020 Ford Ranger FOX 2.5 Factory Race Series Front Coilover Breakdown!

The 2019-2020 Ford Ranger could use more height for especially demanding off-road trails. While there is an abundance of 2019-2020 Ford Ranger aftermarket leveling options to remedy this shortcoming, you can go a number of different routes. You should start with 2019-2020 Ford Ranger aftermarket coilovers and few manufacturers produce better products than FOX. While we've had great experience with FOX parts to provide enough ride height to clear large rocks and protect the valuable components underneath your truck, the latest kit we tried on our 2019 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 Project Truck took our suspension to the next level. When you are speeding across rocky trails, you can trust the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger FOX 2.5 Remote Reservoir Factory Race Series Front Adjustable Coilovers to handle whatever the path throws at you. The 2.5 coilovers were built for high-speed off-roading and provide so much more ability than FOX's 2.0 coilovers or leveled struts!

Before you Buy: Rear Load Support Options for 2015-2020 F150s!

The 2015-2020 F150s are some pretty capable trucks and can tow and haul just about anything you need to have a good time off-road or get the job done. That being said, it's not hard to run into stability and handling problems long before your F150 hits its GVWR or GCWR. The good news is that there's more than one way to prevent wonky handling on your truck when it's loaded down, especially when it's lifted or leveled. F150 Add-a-leaf Kits, Helper Springs, Extended Bump Stops, and Air Spring Kits are all potential solutions to your F150's handling problems when loaded down. Granted, there's pros and cons to each method that you probably should consider before taking a plunge into one of these upgrades. Check after the jump for the breakdown!

Before you Buy: 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Bolt-On Engine Upgrades!

The 2019-2020 Ford Ranger performs okay on off-road paths, but when the truck is left at stock, you're opening up your 2.3L EcoBoost engine to degradation over time. For especially treacherous trails, the stock EcoBoost power and torque also may not be able to give you the punch you need to pass through safely. When you add some of our 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost Engine Parts & Upgrades, your truck will run more efficiently and cleanly with impressive performance boosts. The addition of 2019-2020 Ford Ranger cold air intakes, intake scoops, or an air filter will help prevent contaminants from getting into your engine and intake. Adding a 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost Oil Catch Can or 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Snorkel also helps keep your important intake and engine cleaner. For those performance gains you crave and for the ability to read accurate readings, 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Custom Tuning is essential. You'll find no shortage of bolt-on engine upgrades at Stage 3 Motorsports!

Before You Buy: 2017-2020 Super Duty Fog Light Upgrades

One of the easiest upgrades that you can do to your 2017-2020 F250 or F350 is to upgrade your truck's fog lights. Although they seem like something that is small and insignificant, changing your fog lights can actually make a huge difference when it comes to visibility and safety. For example, if you're one that likes to take your truck off-road every once in a while, then a decent set of fog lights is a must-have. The ones that originally come stock are alright for around-town driving, but they lack a bit when it comes to going off-road. With fog lights as with most things you have a lot of options, which is why we will break down the top three brands that you should take a look at if you are in the market for an upgrade. The top three to look at are Baja Designs, Morimoto, Putco, and Diode Dynamics.

2021 Ford Bronco Revealed! Stage 3's Deep Dive and Possible Upgrade Opportunities!

The 2021 Ford Bronco is officially back...sort of. When you and I will be able to get our grubby mitts on one remains up in the air for the time being. The good news is that on paper, the Bronco lineup seems like the Wrangler-destroyer that we've been waiting for and the trucks all look awesome thanks to the retro-futurism styling that would make the 2005 Mustangs blush. The bad news is that pricing starts off pretty high and some of the neater features mentioned in the reveal video are part of the "Sasquatch Package", whose pricing has not been released. While some of you out there in the world may be thinking that there's not much we at Stage 3 and the performance aftermarket can do to improve the Broncos or top Ford's "200 approved aftermarket parts", but we're inclined to disagree, and not just because we're stubborn. We're super-pumped for the resurrected Bronco, and we're going to be listing just about every Bronco part and accessory that we can get our hands on. Personally, my only gripe (other than price) is that there's no green paint option. An OD Green, off-road ready Bronco? Yes, please.

Before you Buy: 2019-2020 Ford Ranger Custom Tuners, Optimizers & Calibrators!

The 2019-2020 Ford Ranger performs decently as a day-to-day street ride, light off-road romp, or moderate towing vehicle. However, there is so much potential horsepower and torque that is lost from stock tuning. Being able to quickly switch between throttle adjustments to match the type of driving or towing you are doing would also benefit. If you additionally add massive new tires onto your Ranger, then your speedometer and odometer will read inaccurately. Adding 2019-2020 Ford Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost Custom Tuning is the solution you need to fix these shortcomings. With so many new tuning, optimization, and calibration options, you will ride around town in a more powerful, better throttled, and accurately displayed Ranger.

The 2021 Ford F150 Revealed!

Our dear Ford Overlords have revealed the 2021 Ford F150, and there's a lot to be excited about with the 14th generation of Ford's 1/2-ton pickup. The new 2021 F150 comes loaded down with features (at least in the higher trim levels that Ford was eager to show off), and they look great. We know this is going to be the 11th berjillion 2021 F150 overview that you've come across, and we're going to take a look at some of the smaller details that Ford touched on that could be good news for folks like us that are probably going to rip the truck apart and throw a bunch of aftermarket parts on it anyway. While all the new technology, options, styling, and whatever else are pretty exciting, the bigger questions are "Will it mod?" "Will it mod well?" and "Will it break when we throw it around?" We're going to take a look at those questions based on the information so far.
