SEMA 2019- Top 25 Lifted Trucks: Classics and Oddities Steal the Show

Classics and Oddities Steal the Show

Jan 15, 2020
Another SEMA show has come and gone, and by now you've seen all of our coverage on trucktrend.com, where we posted up just about every truck at the show. But today we really wanted to show you what really stood out of the crowd to us among the lifted trucks.

We've seen plenty of trends come and go around here, but we have never seen anything like the big-inch lifted truck craze. It's been a big part of this magazine for several years at this point, and has almost exclusively been late model trucks. But do we dare say that we actually may have seen a decrease in those trucks at this year's SEMA show? It's hard to say, but as a whole we felt like a slight bit of quality over quantity was being practiced this year. But what's most important is that we some badass giant late model trucks. There were shining examples of Fords from LGE-CTS, Mickey Thompson, RBP, Road Armor, and Ekstensive Metal Works. Our Favorite GMs came from Kompression Wheels and Kelderman. Titans are few and far between, but Daley Visual managed to stand out with his build among a sea of the big three.

The Overland segment was huge, and you can find hundreds of our photos online, but as much as we loved seeing all the rigs, it takes a lot more than a levelling kit and a tent to make Truckin's Top 25! Still, there was a Ranger in the ARE booth and a killer Patina's Wagoneer that both deserved second and third looks. But there were a couple other segments where we saw a marked increase in vehicles. Lifted vintage trucks are becoming more and more popular every year. We've got two OBS Fords, A triple cab Dodge Ram, A crew cab Bronco, and a K50 Blazer! Finally, we also saw a major uptick in off-road race trucks and high-end prerunners. Our picks include the OBS in the Holley booth, the brand new Chevy HD in the BDS booth, The Denali in the ARE booth, the carbon fiber-clad Silverado in the Bulken booth, and the near-trophy truck tri-five Chevy build in the Line-X booth from Jesse James.
Overall, we were impressed with the variety of trucks and builders' willingness to draw outside the lines. We're hoping to see that trend continue.
