It seems like every time we turn a corner here at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, we’re met with yet another rockin’ 4x4. There are so many killer rigs here, it’s almost overwhelming. That’s good. We’re having a blast seeing what’s hot and/or new in the 4x4-building world. That is one of the reasons, and not the Las Vegas nightlife, why we only got a three-hour power nap last night. We just couldn’t wait to get back to the show!
Today we figured we’d show you some of our favorites so far from this year’s show. To make it even more challenging, we set the max number of vehicles at three. It wasn’t easy. The vehicles we chose are radically different, just like us. Read on to learn about our three favs and then watch the video to view some of the rigs details.
This is Jeremy Benson’s awesome ’51 Dodge Power Wagon. It blew us away with its mix of old school patina and new performance tech. Yeah, that’s a Cummins under the hood, and it has been beefed to produce even more power.
There are several really nice old GM trucks of this vintage at the 2015 SEMA Show, but there was just something about this ’72 K20 owned by Dean Bulloch that sucked us in. The truck has a great story. It was given to Dean by his father-in-law, and Dean has meticulously maintained the truck. Among other features the rig has a 396ci big-block engine with a 250hp shot of nitrous.
We weren’t the only ones to dig this old International. It seemed like every time we wanted to photograph and video the truck, there was a crowd around it. The patina of this truck is beyond awesome. That, mixed with the ultra-cool flatbed, stopped us in our tracks. It appears the body is resting on a medium-duty truck chassis, with all of the medium-truck goodies.
