SEMA is not just a tradeshow where manufacturers can show off their latest creations, it’s also a massive car show featuring the latest creations from top builders from around the world. Beyond that it serves as the Mecca of the car industry with nearly everyone coming together for a full week of SEMA fun. For the fourteenth year, Pindidit has put together after parties to bring together all facets of the SEMA crowd. This year was no exception, with a full week of SEMA fun at the Palms Casino.
When it comes to the stance of a truck, factory height Just doesn’t cut it. Whether you go up or down, the function and the over-all look changes. Lifting a truck may increase its off-road capabilities, but there might be some drawbacks on the street. On the other hand, lowering a street-driven truck will not only improve its appearance, it’ll also provide other benefits.

The slick plastic didn’t offer much traction either.
