The recent 4WD segment of the recent SEMA show was dominated by Ford Broncos. Jeep was a close second, with the Toyota Tundra and Tacoma coming in third. We walked for days to find the best vehicles on show. Obviously “best” is a subjective word and for the sake of SEMA vehicles, best should refer to the most interesting vehicles. Enjoy.
A Wrangler on display at the Jeep stand. The short wheelbase and lightweight design
make for an excellent off-roader
A Wrangler Rubicon kitted for overland travel. This is a great setup for a couple with or
without small children
An FJ Land Cruiser complete with a rooftop tent, trailer, and bikes. This was one of the few
overland-ready vehicles on show
Jeep Truck Hero has six doors and six seats; we are imagining a dune buggy for a large
family or a tour company
The Nissan Frontier Pathfinder with Nismo performance parts makes this a great off-road rig
Old-school excellence. The FJ Cruiser may have few of the performance elements of the
classic Defender, but has a legendary reputation
A F-550 with the EarthRoamer LTi, a vacuum-infused carbon-filter camper body which is
fully equipped and ready to go, for those who can afford the $600,000 (starting) price tag
Tacozilla created a huge buzz and went viral long before the show. Unfortunately, this
concept camper will most likely never make it to mass production
The Gladiator is a practical base for modification. With a few small changes, this vehicle
would be ready for the long road
The iKamper Toyota is a no-fuss vehicle, tastefully prepared for an active adventure
The Lippert Jeep Rubicon. Lippert is a large supplier of RV parts and spares
TRDPro: go fast, or go home
This Weistec 1998 Mercedes-Benz U1550L belonged to Arnold Schwarzenegger
