The only thing better than watching your dear friends over at Stage 3 Motorsports put together an awesome, aggressive project vehicle is when you can own the thing yourself. Our 2020 F150 Giveaway truck started its life as a decently-equipped 2020 F150 XLT 5.0L, but ended up being one of the most wicked F150s we ever put together, and more importantly, ended up in the hands of a lucky winner that entered our Giveaway Contest. While things didn't quite go as planned, since we were going to announce the winner at the now-cancelled SEMA 2020 (thanks, 'Rona), the truck itself turned out amazing, and we had a lot of help from some of our favorite performance parts and accessories manufacturers.
Despite the flashiness of our 2020 F150 Giveaway build, some of its more subtle modifications made the biggest difference in how the truck handled the everyday grind and how it looked. With a combination of sway bars, audio upgrades, and spare tire rack, our 2020 F150 Giveaway truck was just as nice to drive to and from the office as it was to rip around off-road at speed.

While the 2020 F150 5.0Ls have some giddy-up, there's plenty of room for more with the right modifications. That's why we added more than a few F150 Powertrain and Exhaust upgrades to our awesome 2020 F150 Giveaway so that the winner of this slick truck can enjoy plenty of extra horsepower and torque to make ripping around off-road that much more fun.

An F150 that's going to see some time out on the trail is going to need an impressive suite of lighting in order to enjoy late-night trail runs or after-dark adventures out to your favorite camp site. Regardless, our 2020 F150 Giveaway Build, being a Stage 3 Build, was going to get more than a few lighting upgrades, and between the headlights and the off-roading lighting we threw on this truck, we got a great look and massive amounts of light output.

The heart of any off-road ready F150 build will be its suspension and tires, and we at Stage 3 spared no expense in prepping our 2020 F150 Giveaway build for wild off-road action. With 2.5 coilovers and shocks, aggressive M/T tires, awesome and high-quality wheels, and some aftermarket brake parts, our 2020 Giveaway F150 was ready to take on the toughest off-road challenges at nearly any speed. With excellent traction and the damping performance to handle any terrain, our 2020 F150 build was the perfect setup for some serious off-road adventures.

An F150 that's going to see some serious off-roading is going to need more protection and clearance than what the stock bumpers provide. Getting a great look and the ability to mount up some serious off-road lighting are just cherries on top. We turned to one of the most notable names in off-road bumpers to get a wicked set of heavy-duty, off-road bumpers that gave our 2020 Giveaway truck the look we wanted and the protection it needed to survive the toughest off-road applications that we or its future owner had in mind.

Just because we're giving this truck away, doesn't mean we weren't going to have some fun with it. We took our 2020 F150 Giveaway truck out to stretch its legs in the wilds of the Arizona deserts. While we didn't want to break the truck before it went off to its new owner, we did want to show off at least some of its immense capabilities and have some fun ourselves before it went off to greener pastures.
