If your walking shoes are ready, head on over to the Las Vegas Convention Center for SEMA 2018. The Specialty Equipment Market Association is only open to members of the press and the aftermarket, and it is the best way to see what's new in the world of parts and vehicle customization. Our team is already on-site, so be sure to check out the live videos on our Facebook page. We couldn't do this without the support of our clients, so here is our guide to this amazing event.
You might recognize Lexani as the leader of the wheel industry, but their artists in Corona, California have branched out into building incredible custom vehicles. Their booth is filled with custom exotics, pretty ladies, and the best wheels in the world.
Hennessey Performance
John Hennessey and his team are located in the Shell and Pennzoil booth. The big news for 2019 is the Velociraptor V8 along with the twin-turbo beast from the Venom F5.
Starwood Motors
Starwood Motors has taken their potent prescription for performance and infused it into the new Jeep JL. Stop by BodyGuard's booth to see the wildest Wranglers in the world!
Fab Fours
If you demand the best from your truck, Fab Fours has a booth that will keep you awake at night. Booth 30201 is loaded with American made accessories for all brands of trucks and SUVs.
American Expedition Vehicles
AEV is the first to patent a dual-sport suspension. Their builds include the Jeep Brute conversions, the Dodge Prospector Tray Bed, and they are Chevrolet's supplier for the Colorado ZR2 Bison. These aren't just pretty parts, they are engineered to tolerances that the OEMs have only dreamed of.
Brand New Muscle Car
If you don't have the deep pockets to purchase a 1969 Yenko Camaro, Brand New Muscle Car will build a new one for you. Their new 1969 Camaros are correct in every detail, and they can be seen in the Classic Industries display.
Specialty Vehicle Engineering
The Yenko brand has also been revived for late-model performance. SVE uses forced induction and proprietary tuning to unlock 1,000 horsepower in any new Camaro, Corvette and even the Silverado.
Desert Power Wagons
The original Power Wagon was a workhorse, but it was cramped and underpowered. That is why Desert Power Wagons adds 6" to the front doors and their cabs are hand-fabricated works of art. Details like the original Army winch are modernized with MileMarker internals, and the 1-ton axles can be locked electronically.
Xpel Technologies
If your Lamborghini Centenario is collecting dust, Xpel has the latest in paint protection film. Their warranty is the best in the industry, so they chose one of the most coveted cars on earth for a full body display.

Fittipaldi Wheels
If you are in search of the perfect fitment, Fittipaldi Wheels have a wild display at booth 62130. Fittipaldi wheels are the brainchild of F1 legend Emerson Fittipaldi. Having seen the best and worst parts of racing, every wheel in their lineup is cut from a solid billet of T6 alloy.

Car Capsule
Nothing keeps your car safer than CarCapsule. Their showcases are inflated by a low-amperage blower and sealed tight so it doesn't use much power. Door dings, rodents, spiders, and mold are kept out of the positive pressure environment. They will be featured in several booths, both inside and out.
