SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association, is basically all those folks who make cool stuff for our cars and 4x4s. Every year these companies descend on Las Vegas for a weeklong trade show, where they reveal their latest and greatest widgets to dealers and shop owners. We attend too, to check out the cool stuff and let you know what is coming down the pike. Expect to see these items in a 4x4 shop near you in the next calendar year.
