With very little time before shipping the very issue you're holding, we headed to the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada, for a two-day whirlwind thrash fest. The SEMA show is the largest aftermarket equipment show in the U.S. and likely the world. We walked and ran through the entire show scoping out cool new products, snatched flyers, popped pictures, kissed hands and shook babies. At the end of two days and two nights we turned our blistered feet and hungover brains toward home. Here's the trick aftermarket specialty equipment we found lurking the show floor.

Our New SEMA Terms
Murdered Out
A vehicle that is completely blacked out in a satin or flat black finish."Dude, that Jeep is all murdered out!"

Hustle Monster
A dancer at a strip club that won't go away and keeps trying to work you over for money."Oh, lookout man, that chick is a full-on hustle monster."

A '71-'76 Chevy Impala or Caprice with 22- to 30-inch wheels that often has an over-the-top paint scheme. Also known as hi-risers because they utilize lift kits for wheel and tire clearance."Check out the wheels on that donk."
