Since we're done with the installation of performance bolt-ons on our F150 project truck we decided that it's time to take care about the stopping power and install a set of Drilled and Slotted brake rotors by StopTech. It's a perfect upgrade in case you would like to bring the performance of your truck to the new level or simply perform a scheduled brake replacement. Plus, if you decide to tow with your rig, more stopping power will never hurt!

Effective heat dissipation is the main benefit of drilled and slotted rotors. Drilled holes and vanes allow water and gases to disappear and help to cool down the brakes more efficiently, which is exactly what we need for our Project F150!

Watch Greg from CARiD.com show you the step by step process of how easy is it to get brake rotors installed. These StopTech rotors are the perfect addition to any vehicle and can be installed in your home garage with basic hand tools.

Hi everyone, today we would like to talk about the safety of the lift kits, because this important element is often being overlooked while choosing the most attractive option. As you know lift kits change the geometry of the suspension of a truck which is reflected in how it handles and behaves on the road. It also means that not all lift kits are equal in terms of safety and handling characteristics, because the center of masses is raised. Not all of the lift kit manufacturers would tell you if their lift solution will maintain normal suspension operation, but for our project truck we decided to pick one that would be reliable and absolutely safe to use. Pro Comp Stage1 6" lift kit happens to be one of such kits and unlike many other brands it actually tests their kits and makes sure they correspond with current safety standard FMVSS 126.

Their kit for 2015&UP F150 received certification that it meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 126 (FMVSS 126). FMVSS 126 requires the successful operation of electronic stability control (ESC) on all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds GVW. In order to demonstrate that Pro Comp’s suspension system did not negatively affect these systems on the new Ford pickup, Pro Comp had tests performed on an F-150 outfitted with their 6” Stage I suspension, 35-inch Pro Comp Xtreme MT/2 tires mounted on 20-inch Phantom Pro Comp Alloy wheels
