We traveled to Las Vegas to attend SEMA 2018, the world's largest...
Each November in Las Vegas, Nevada, some of the world’s finest custom-built vehicles gather for a trade show known as SEMA. SEMA stands for the Specialty Equipment Market Association, but it’s better known as the representative body for the entire automotive aftermarket industry. The SEMA show represents the culmination of a year’s worth of automotive upgrades and technical development, and it’s where you’ll find the most cutting-edge products and accessories currently available for cars and trucks. However, it’s much more than a showcase for auto parts. It’s also where you’ll find millions upon millions of dollars in custom cars, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycles in every imaginable size and shape.
Since the SEMA show is an industry-only trade show, and not open to the general public, we wanted to give you a look inside the Las Vegas Convention Center and show you what we saw there. This being a survival publication, we skipped over the flashy muscle cars and tuned-up imports to capture the OG-worthy vehicles of SEMA. While some of the rides we saw looked to be more “show” than “go”, all of these trucks and SUVs grabbed our attention for their survival-oriented features.
So, check out the gallery below, and let us know which one you’d want to bug out in!
