Roll Call! Truck Guru Reveals 32 SEMA 2019 Build Renderings
And We Get an Exclusive Look
Truck Guru, a company known for truck renderings and project management, has no shortage of vehicles slated to rock its logo at the SEMA 2019 show. Although we've been given access to 32 renderings, the company has created upwards of 40 renderings of builds to look for at the massive industry-only trade show.
The name of the game at SEMA is to stand tall (or low low low) in order to draw attention to the innovative truck products and accessories included in the build. (Newsflash: Although SEMA seems to be one big car show, it actually isn't. You can't just show off your truck because it's cool.) Put any one of these builds in a grocery store parking lot and there'd be crowds swarming. Put it in SEMA and it's one of hundreds; it's lucky to be seen and even luckier to be remembered. Sure, the builds are polarizing, and the camp of "function-only" enthusiasts will be disgusted and dismayed by the bling bling and flash. Here's the bottom line—to each his own. Spend your 75K however you want.
Anyone who says big lifted HD truck aren't a thing simply hasn't been to SEMA. They're most certainly a thing, and SEMA validates their popularity with rows and rows of big trucks on bigger powdercoated lifts atop ginormous wheels. What can fit 42x16.50R30 tires and make them look just right? SEMA trucks. But don't be fooled—not all of these trucks are HDs. Sprinkled within the masses are a few 1500 half-tonners done up (even with 8-lug axles) to look like their larger brethren. Can you spot them in the renderings below? On a side note, we'd love to see more Titan XD builds.
With all that being said, these renderings come as no surprise—and in real life, they'll look even better. Most SEMA builds are later-model trucks, and often builders try to be among the first to modify brand new trucks. That's how you push the proverbial envelope. We're glad to see a few 2019 Ram 2500s in the mix and even a 2020 GMC 2500HD. Is Truck Guru hiding any 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HDs? On the opposite end of the spectrum, we're always suckers for OBS Fords and other builds that fall in the rare or vintage categories. Of course, we'll be on the lookout for custom flatbeds, swaps, conversions, and creative modifications.
We'll inspect the finished builds at SEMA!
