Diesel Badness Is Everywhere You Look at SEMA 2014
Las Vegas Brings the Bling and Brawn
We’re now halfway through the second day of the 2014 SEMA Show, and we feel like we can honestly say that this year’s SEMA is definitely one of the most exciting and robust events we’ve experienced in several years.
While a lot of the excitement stems from major happenings in the gasoline world (tricked-out versions of Ford’s all-new 2015 Mustangs are everywhere, and we’ve also come across a few slick ’15 F-150s), trust and believe me, there’s plenty going on over in our neck of the performance and accessorizing woods, too, as we've ascertained from the first day.
In this report, we bring you an assemblage of photos highlighting the absolutely wicked diesel pickups (and hot rods!) that are scattered throughout the halls and outdoor display areas at the SEMA Show. Unfortunately, one of the downfalls of enormous events like this is that sometimes details for many of the rigs being shown off are not included with the presentation and their owners are nowhere to be found.
Although the absence of information about the each rig shown here certainly leaves a lot to the imagination (How much power does it make? What type of suspension does it have? How does it ride?), these trucks definitely epitomize the extremely high level of “custom” that goes into the design and construction of trucks that are built for the SEMA Show.
Diesel Power staff editor Trevor Reed just arrived, and in the words of a bad Vegas magician duo, “We’re here all week, folks!” We’ll be working hard to gather all of the hard-core intel on new stuff for diesels that we can.
