Literally Just Some More Truck Pictures From SEMA 2017 – #TENSEMA17

Do We Really Need a Reason to Post Some More Photos of the Show?

Nov 4, 2017
SEMA 2017 has officially come to a close and we’re still winding down from the high of it all. From move-in on Sunday afternoon to SEMA Ignited last night, we wore out the soles of our shoes and the shutter buttons on our cameras to try our best to cover this massive event.
With that in mind, here are a few more favorites from the show, ranging from a Cummins turbodiesel I-6–swapped 1950 Cadillac to a lowered, supercharged 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500. As you can tell, everywhere we looked there were awesome trucks, SUVs, and diesels to ogle. Las Vegas really is the undisputed champion of overstimulation, and SEMA 2017 was no different.

Cummins 6BT–Swapped 1950 Cadillac Coupe

Found at the Wet Sounds marine audio booth, this 1950 Cadillac at first looks like a cool rat rod and nothing more. But peek closer at the copper engine accents and you’ll see a distinctive cylinder head atop that I-6 engine, betraying this machine as Cummins-powered.

1954 Chevrolet 5700 COE

Dripping in vintage beige over modern burgundy paint, the 1954 cab-over Chevrolet at the Toyo Tires display is motivated by a 6.6L Duramax diesel V-8 backed up by a pushbutton-controlled Allison transmission. One of our favorite details is the vintage-looking custom powertrain badging, as if Chevy was making Duramaxes and pairing them with Allisons back in the Jet Age.

Icon Reformer 1965 Ford F-250 “Six-Pack”

Another awesome diesel swap was Icon 4x4’s newest creation, an F-250 that’s part of the company’s Reformer series. As expected on an Icon, it retains most of its original attractiveness, just enhanced a bit with Icon’s attention to detail. Check out the turned-aluminum bodyside moldings, brushed grille and bumpers, and rare crew-cab bodystyle. And of course, there’s a Cummins 6BT under the hood motivating all four wheels.

1972 Toyota Land Cruiser “Retro Crawler”

Built by Resurrection Land Cruisers, the Retro Crawler is the company’s take on what Toyota might have baked up had they been focusing on rock crawling in 1972. Sporting a later-model Toyota 3F-E 4.0L I-6 and FJ60 front and rear axles, the build is as faithful to Toyota spec as possible. It was showcased sporting some impressive flex as part of the Bilstein booth.

1993 Isuzu NPR Baller Hauler

Bro-ey name aside, the Baller Hauler is actually pretty cool, and an ideal way to get your JDM drift car to the track. Plus, how cool is it that your show car and your tow pig have matching Air Ride Performance suspension setups and paint that wouldn’t look out of place in a 1980s action cartoon?

2008 Toyota Land Cruiser for Xelles Rally

Remember our friends at Xelles and Expedition Overland? Allow us to introduce you to Gary, their 2008 Land Cruiser. Originally one of the Xelles’ daily driver, it’s now the team’s designated rally competitor and overland machine, competing in the 2016 Rebelle Rally and completing a few expeditions since it was built last year. General Grabber red-letter tires, a long list of ARB accessories, and plenty of onboard storage make it perfect for either Montana or Mexico.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited “Tomahauk”

We’ve learned long ago to never expect anything less than totally wild from Kenny Hauk Customs, and Tomahauk proves our theory. Actual airplane-riveted body panels, surplus plane seats, and replica dual plane yokes give the whole package a distinct World War II aviation vibe, but the twin-turbo powertrain roots it firmly in this century.

1961 Cadillac custom 4x4 sedan

We have no details as to what this machine is (and we think ZZ Top might have something to say about that personalized plate), but we definitely want one. What’s not to love about a 1961 Caddy mounted to a lifted, heavy-duty, four-wheel-drive chassis?

Jase Andrews, from Unleashed TV

Jase Andrews, the star of Australia’s popular Unleashed TV, attended SEMA to introduce the United States to his exciting brand of overland travel. Unleashed sends him to the most remote places in Australia with a variety of unusual vehicles, and Jase and his travel partner Simon Anderson find their way through the obstacles every time. What a treat it was to meet Jase!
