We traveled to Las Vegas to attend SEMA 2018, the world's largest...
If you’re interested in cars, trucks, SUVs, Jeeps, ATVs, motorcycles, or any other sort of vehicle on wheels, the SEMA Show is the place to be. This massive automotive trade show takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center each November, and is jam-packed with thousands of custom vehicles of every size and shape.
The SEMA Show is not open to the general public, so you’ll need to be part of the automotive industry or a member of the media to get in the doors. Fortunately, we fall into the second category, so we’re able to snap some photos of what we saw there. There were plenty of hot rods, classic cars, tuned imports, and other vehicles, but considering the theme of this publication, we obviously gravitated towards bug-out trucks and SUVs.
We returned from the show with more than 200 photos, so we’ll share the first batch of bug-out-worthy truck builds (and some that aren’t) in the gallery below. You may notice there aren’t any Jeeps in this gallery — there were so many custom Jeeps at the show, we’re going to publish them separately in another post tomorrow.
Now, we’ll let the photos do the talking. Enjoy! (If you’re on a slow connection or a cellular device, you may want to come back to this later — it’s very image-heavy.)
Certain SEMA builds exhibit more, uh... restraint... than others.
