Slammed Trucks of SEMA 2014 - The Laid-Out Trucks of SEMA 2014
Slammed Trucks Are Back!
Well, we all know they were never really gone, but trucks of a much lower altitude were ever-present at this year's show, and there were a lot of people talking about it. From 2015 models that went under the knife just in time to make the show to killer classic builds that were years in the making and everything in between, There were several slammed trucks that we heard being talked about over and over by the crowds of people that stood around them.
Phat Phabrications had three trucks dispersed throughout the show and the '08 GMC, '14 GMC, and '15 Chevy 3500 HD dualie were all sporting giant billets, tasteful graphics, and a flat-on-the-ground stance. Truckin-sponsored trucks were spaced out all over the show this year, leaving the space up the curb between the North and Central halls open for a few more of our friends' trucks to be parked, namely C10s. Sisco's Fabrication had their one-off crew cab shorty on display, and a killer green Chevy from Cen Cal was just a few trucks over. Just in front of them was the bare metal and HOK Purple C10 belonging to Chris Daley of TP Certified Hotrods, and the metal fab, 'cage work, and one-off 20-inch steel wheels were enough to earn Chris the Best Engineered award from Eastwood. Well, that may have had something to do with the fully polished WWII-era radial engine under the hood, too!
One area that was lacking this year was mini-trucks. While a killer V-8-powered Tacoma and superclean S-10, both covered in graphics, were representing their brethren well, we're hoping to see a bunch more next year. Check out some of our favorite lifted trucks of the show.
